Bouteloua Gracilis Grasses
Bouteloua Gracilis (Blue Grama)
A wonderful little grass for a sunny well drained bed, the flowers are a curiosity, borne on stiffly upright stems with each one carrying a small number of brush-like reddish flower spikes that are suspended from the stems horizontally and sometimes curl into a perfect circle as they mature and dry, Bouteloua Gracilis stops you in your tracks!
A tufted, hardy perennial and low growing grass, good ground cover that would go well with other grasses and would look great interspersed with hardy perennials. 60cm x 60cm.
