This grass dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: moderately fertile, medium to light, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June to September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    A dramatic addition to the garden, this deciduous grass has tall, glaucous, arching leaves and produces masses of long, fluffy, silvery-white flowers in late summer. In autumn, the leaves and flowers mature to a beautiful buff colour. Use as a focal point in a mixed border or gravel garden, or to soften the lines of a building.

  • Garden care: Cut down to the ground in late winter, before the new foliage appears.
