Calamagrostis brachytricha

Calamagrostis brachytricha produces neat clumps of green foliage throughout Summer, Calamagrostis brachytricha then comes into its own in August/September when flowers emerge like large feathers that turn a beautiful purple grey. Holds the morning dew hence the common name of diamond grass because it sparkles in the sunlight.

The seed heads persist throughout much of the winter before we sheer them back to the ground in mid to late February.

Best grown in full sun where the soil does not dry out too much.  120cm.
