Gorgeous Grasses

A- | A+

To add some colour and interest to your garden this autumn, take a look at this selection of grasses we have to offer.

Stipa arundinacea is a grass that provides lovely reds and oranges to autumn before turning into browns later on.  Height 1m x 1.2m.

The next two grasses, Panicum virgatum ‘Rehbraun’ and Panicum virgatum ‘Heiliger Hain’, both provide lush green foliage with tints of red and purple which intensify as the autumn comes.  Both provide good height at around the 1 metre mark.

For real height and impact the Miscanthus sinensis ‘Rotfeder’ comes in at the 2 metre mark.  With fine green leaves and big red flowers from September, it creates a firework like display.  This grass also doesn’t need cutting back until spring, so can provide structure through the winter months.

For something a little smaller there are two evergreen options; Festuca glauca ‘Intense Blue’ (30cm x 30cm), which is exactly what it is providing – a fantastic blue all year round, and Carex oshimensis ‘Evergold’ which has beautiful green and yellow leaves (35cm x 35cm).
