Ornamental grasses are indispensable - they provide contrast to more colourful plants, and move gracefully with the wind. They can be grown in a mixed border, or in a 'grassery' by themselves, and they look great in pots.
A very ornamental grass, forming upright clumps of fresh green leaves from which appear distinctive arching flowerheads, white flushed pink aging to buff in autumn. Well-drained soil in sun.
One of the best blue grasses with narrow, intense blue leaves and almost prostrate flower spikes in summer.
