Ideal in containers, but as happy studding a hot, dry, sunny border, planted with traditional herbaceous plants (look terrific with Hemerocallis); handy in large swathes as ground cover; super for growing on difficult dry banks or rock and gravel gardens, and naturalises well

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

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

      Wonderful in a container of mixed border. Delicate soft grass with oat coloured see heads that dance in the breeze. Long season of interest. A real delight.
