Versatile grass with a long season of interest.  The foliage on this clump forming grass emerges fresh light green in spring then slowly turns a lovely shade of bronzy red in autumn.  From August onwards the tiny bright rose-red flowers appear and create a rosy haze floating above the foliage.  Loves a sunny spot and is very drought tolerant.

Hardy Perennial

Packet of 40 seeds

 


GROWING GUIDE

Sowing Instructions:  Sow at any time of year.

Sow onto the surface of a moist, free-draining seed compost and lightly press the seeds into the soil.  Propagate at 20 to 22C in a propagator, greenhouse or on a windowsill indoors sealed in a polythene bag.  Keep the compost moist and the humidity high.  Germination should begin to take place in 14 to 21 days. As soon as some of the seedlings begin to emerge increase ventilation by opening the bag or propagator vents and maintain a temperature of around 15-18C.

Growing Instructions:  Grow the seedlings on, shaded lightly from direct sunlight and when large enough to handle, pot up individually into 8 or 9cm pots.  When large enough, plant out into well-drained soil in a sunny position.
