SPECIAL OFFER Ornamental Grasses Offer Two

No autumn garden is complete without the tall airy panicles of Molinia or gold pony tails of Miscanthus. Grasses are essential for lightening the herbaceous border. Their airy panicles relieve the gaudy blooms of later summer and the gentle movement of their stems introduces a dynamic element into too rigid plantings
This collection is designed for those with the space to grow larger grasses, whether in the border or in large containers. Miscanthus to us are the kings of the ornamental grass world, some towering at 8 or 9 ft tall others a more manageable 4-5 ft. They have the best plumes and give structure throughout the winter. Complimented by many other grasses including the Molinia – the more dainty of the two with an upright habit and much less width.
This collection comprises of 6 of our favourite tall grasses for just £35.20 – that’s 20% off the RRP.
Molinia caerulea Moorhexe – Purple flowered moor grass with narrowly erect habit. Sept-Oct. Ht. 100cm. Sp. 35cm. Sun or part shade.
Molinia caerulea Heidebraut – Produces a mass of slender flowering stems with purple flowers in Aug-Sept. The whole plant turns yellow in autumn. Ht. 110cm. Sp. 60cm
