GRASSES FOR FLOWERS

 
Although grasses do not bear brightly coloured pink or red petals, many possess beautiful flowers with great form and structure.  Appreciated for flower clusters, plumes and clouds of panicles, grass flowers are best appreciated where the sun can catch them and even better still against a darker background.  Grass flower heads range from the feathery inflorescences of Miscanthus to the tiny pearl drop-like heads of Melica nutans.
 

Look out for:

  • Calamagrostis acutiflora 'Karl Foerster'

  • Deschampsia caespitosa

  • Deschampsia flexuosa 'Tatra Gold'

  • Hordeum jubatum

  • Miscanthus

  • Molinia caerulea 'Variegata'

  • Panicum virgatum 'Squaw'

  • Pennisetum

  • Stipa gigantea
