I've seen this versatile grass used to great effect in containers, planted as a dwarf edging in a Mediterranean garden, or just dotted through a gravelled area and it always looks terrific, excellent for contemporary gardens

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June to July
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    A compact, blue leaves ornamental grass, with needle-like, silvery blue-green leaves and short spikes of blue-green midsummer flowers, gradually fading to buff. Neat and rounded in shape, it looks great in a gravel garden, combined with the spires of blue and purple-flowering perennials, or with Mediterranean-style plants. To achieve the best foliage colour, these plants need lots of sun.

  • Garden care: Comb through the plant with your fingers in winter to remove dead foliage. Container-grown specimens should be watered well when they are establishing. Plants need replacing every few years as they become tatty-looking.
