Sesleria autumnalisCommon Name: 'Moor grass'
A useful semi-evergreen grass forming compact clumps of greyish-green foliage which turns distinctly lime-green later in the season. Longish silver-grey flower spikes with prominent white stamens are produced in summer and early autumn. Jun-Sep. H90cm S60cm.
Easily grown in sun or partial shade and most moderately fertile soil types. Tolerant of drought once established. The lime green foliage is great for lighting up the edges of borders and paths. Treat as an evergreen grass by combing or raking any dead foliage off in Spring although it can be cut back hard in spring if looking tired.
