Description How to Grow Delivery

Including varieties with yellow, green, silver, blue and red foliage, this collection showcases the ornamental qualities of grasses, as well as their garden usefulness and versatility. Lending themselves to a wide range of planting situations, from patio pots to borders to pond marginals, these hardy grasses provide year-round structure, colour and textural interest.

Colourful Ornamental Grass Collection contains the following 5 varieties:

  • Acorus gramineus ‘Ogon’ - Grown for its attractive foliage, this showy perennial is perfect for softening the edges of ponds with its aromatic, semi-evergreen leaves. The arching, yellow and green, variegated foliage forms wide fans with a low, clump-forming habit. Slender Sweet Flag enjoys a moist position in a bog garden or as a marginal aquatic at the water’s edge. Height: 25cm (10"). Spread: 35cm (14"). Planting depth: Zone 1 & 2 to 5cm depth.
  • Carex ‘Frosted Curls’ - Forms low hummocks composed of fine, hair-like leaves, curled at their ends. The silvery green leaves cascade over border edges and winter containers providing all-year-round foliage interest. Ideal for low-maintenance groundcover in sun or partial shade. Height and Spread: 40cm (14in).
  • Festuca glauca - An evergreen grass grown for its stiff, architectural blue foliage. From early summer, the foliage is complemented by short, blue-green flower spikes. Perfect for patio pots, rockeries, gravel gardens and borders, mixing nicely with perennials, alpines or even small shrubs. Remains nicely compact as it grows. Height and spread: 30cm (12").
  • Imperata ‘Red Baron’ (Imperata cylindrica ‘Rubra’) - An unusual and dramatic grass. The leaves are green at the base, with red tips that appear more intense as summer progresses into autumn, when they begin to shine like a jewel and light up the garden when it’s starting to look a little past its best. Height & Spread: 50cm (20”).
  • Scirpus cernuus(Isolepsis cernua)slender club rush – This quirky grass has earned the fun moniker, ‘Fibre Optic Plant’, due to its unusual looks. Scripus cernuus is a UK native which forms low clumps of shooting foliage. In summer, each stem carries a silvery flower right at its tip, hence its nickname. Slender Club Rush is grown as a marginal pond plant or in a bog garden or trough. This non-invasive, aquatic/marginal grass is ideal for a wildlife pond where it will oxygenate the water whilst providing a useful habitat for dragonflies. Height and Spread: 30cm (12in).

Van Meuwen strives to ensure that all its plants are delivered to you in the perfect condition for planting. While the majority of our nursery plants cope well with slight delays in intransit, sadly, the time it takes to deliver to certain locations in the UK means that we can't guarantee this for some of our smaller plug products and tender bedding and vegetable lines, which do not respond well to the extra journey time. So regretfully while we offer the majority of our live plant offering nationwide, we are unable to ship plugs, begging plants and tender vegetable plants to the following areas: HS, IV41-IV49, IV51, IV55-56, KW15-KW17, PA34, PA41-48, PA60-PA78, PA80, PH40-PH44, TR21-TR24, ZE1-ZE3.
