A deciduous clump-forming perennial grass. This is a strongly upright form which is also particularly tall growing. Panicles of purple flower spikelets appear in late summer which, together with the foliage, turn to warm autumnal colours later in the season. Jul-Oct. H210cm S90cm.
Best grown in any moderately fertile, moist but well-drained soil in sun or partial shade. Prefers acidic or neutral soil. Cut back stems close to ground level from early March.
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.
