Sesleria nitida (nest moor grass)

Sesleria nitida (nest moor grass) £7.99
Position: full sun or lightly dappled shade Soil: moderately fertile, well drained, neutral or slightly alkaline Rate of growth: average Flowering period: July to October Hardiness: fully hardy A native of central and southern Italy, this gorgeous little grass is grown mainly for its colourful foliage. It forms dense mounds of pale grey-green to grey-blue leaves, which stay on the plant throughout the year. In spring it throws up whitish green cone-shaped flowerspikes, that bobble about in the breeze. Once established it can be very drought tolerant, and it looks great in a herbaceous or mixed border or wildflower meadow. Garden care: Gently comb through the foliage in spring to remove some of the older foliage and to encourage fresh new growth.
