Ideal Grasses For Your Garden.
Can You suggest some grasses for my garden?
Miscanthus Sinensis ‘Zebrinus’ has yellow horizontal striped foliage for summer interest and then in autumn it produces silky, brown-pink flowers.
Stipa Arundinacea continue to give form and shape throughout the year with the added bonus of autumn/winter colour.This grass is not tall – it grows to about 1m (3ft) high by the same spread – but,like taller grasses,it makes an excellent specimen plant in the border or a container.
Hordeum Jubatum: a beautiful small grass that grows to 50cm (20in) high, it carries silky,greyish panicles in early and mid summer,which develop a reddish or purple tinge right at the tips. An exquisite sight.Fantastic in massed groups, or around taller,more stately plants.
Briza Maxima: the annual greater quaking grass is ideal in cottage gardens and growing under apple trees.The stems are so thin as to be almost invisible,but they carry heart-shaped tiny flower-heads that rustle in the breeze and turn beige in the autumn.Grows to 60cm (2ft).
Miscanthus Sinensis Kleine Silberspinne Compact: clump-forming grass with narrow, silvery leaves with a white midrib and dark red-brown narrow fan-shaped flower plumes fading to silver in autumn; ideal for the small garden.
