This outstanding variegated grass forms a dense clump of green leaves with fine cream margins. New leaves are tinged pink. The flowers are a greyish-purple colour which fades to brown in late autumn/winter and provide a great vertical accent to the border in late summer. Jul-Sep. H90cm S60cm.
Easy to grow in most moist, humus-rich, well-drained fertile soils in sun or partial shade, but will tolerate all but the poorest soils.
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.
