    A slow-spreading, evergreen perennial that forms loose clumps of rough, deep green leaves. In early and midsummer sprays of pure white, tuft-like flowers appear that last for several weeks and these can be dried for flower arrangements. This is a pretty and useful ornamental grass that eventually makes a good groundcover in shadier areas of the garden. It will also thrive in a sunny spot if the soil is reliably moist.

  • Garden care: Lift and divide congested colonies between April and June. Remove tatty foliage in early spring.
