Description How to Grow More Info Delivery

Ornamental grasses are invaluable for delivering texture and movement to the garden. The gentle rustle of swaying foliage brings tranquillity to borders and offers a long season of interest. We’ve brought together three beautiful perennial grasses in one collection. These compact, clump forming varieties each send up elegant flower heads in late summer, providing fabulous interest that extends well into autumn. Perfect for dotting among herbaceous perennials or planting ats part of a mixed patio display.

Architectural Grasses Collection comprises:

  • Miscanthus ‘Ruby Cute’ - An arching, deciduous grass which is at its best in autumn when the slender green leaves turn to bright ruby red. Height and spread: 40cm (16").
  • Pennisetum alopecuroides 'Black Beauty' – Fluffy bottlebrush flowers are borne above an arching mound of slender green foliage. Height and spread: 100cm (39").
  • Molinia caerulea ssp. arundinacea 'Mostenveld' - A variegated variety, forming a neat tussock of cream and green striped leaves, which turn to gold in autumn. Height: 120cm (48”). Spread: 60cm (24”).
Flowering Months

3 x 12cm potted plants (1 of each variety) (KC1119)

Grow ornamental grasses in fertile, moist, well drained soil in full sun, avoiding soils that sit wet in winter.
Feed and water grasses regularly until fully established. Cut back dead foliage and stems to ground level in early spring before new growth appears. Lift and divide overcrowded clumps of grasses every third year to maintain their vigour.
