A vigorous grass with arching, ribbon-like, dark green leaves narrowly margined with gold. Turns yellow in autumn, holding its form well through most of the winter, when it is a pale biscuit colour. It has spiked pale green inflorescences in summer. Jun-Jul. H120cm S90cm.
Grow in permanently moist, fertile soil. Tolerant of saline and thrives in boggy sites. Looks good near water. Leave the foliage over winter for its useful effect and then cut to the base in spring.
Macplants are central/southern Scotland's largest growers of herbaceous perennials, alpines, ferns and ornamental grasses. We have our plant centre open to the public in East Lothian, close to Edinburgh and we also supply a diverse range of trade clients both in the landscape and garden centre sectors.
We grow a large range of plants including many interesting and unusual varieties not usually seen for sale. Amongst the many plants we grow are our highly praised autumn Gentians bred here by Dr Ian McNaughton and probably the largest range of Meconopsis cultivars found anywhere.
