wavy hair grass
- Position: full sun or partial shade
- Soil: dry to moist, acid soil
- Rate of Growth: average
- Flowering period: June and July
- Flowers: bronze-purple
- Hardiness: fully hardy
Beautiful, bronze-purple flower spikes, which catch even the lightest breeze, top the mounds of striking, bluish green leaves from early to midsummer. This is an eye-catching and ornamental, evergreen grass that is perfect for the front of the border in either full sun or lightly dappled shade. For the best results plant it in acid soil.
- Garden care: Remove the faded flower-heads in late winter before new growth appears. If the foliage has also started to look tatty at that time of the year, then this too can be cut back hard. In warm areas the plant has a tendency to self-seed freely. Where this is the case remove unwanted seedlings as part of routine border maintenance.
