    A tufted semi-evergreen grass with purplish-tinted, green leaves. In summer locket-shaped, green-purple flowers, which fade to buff, hang from wiry branches. Lovely in wildflower meadows, their flowers are excellent for drying.

  • Garden care: Collect the seed before it disperses to use the following year. Dig out dead plants in early spring. Cut back tatty-looking foliage in spring.
