Description How to Grow Delivery

This gorgeous perennial grass forms tight mounds of semi-evergreen, blue-green leaves which burst forth with fine stems from which dangle numerous, purple-tinted flowerheads. Looking like miniature hops, these tiny flowerheads bob and quiver in the breeze, creating a shimmering haze in the sunlight – a habit which has earned it a host of charming nicknames such as Doddering Dillies, Jiggle Joggles and Dithering Grass. Best grown in groups for maximum impact, Briza media adds a wild, informal look, associating beautifully with other grasses and prairie-style plants but also making a lovely feature in a container. The seed heads are excellent for dried flower arrangements. Height and Spread: 50-90cm (20-35”).

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.
