Grass Collections Shady Border 8 Pack Grasses
Shady border grass collection.
Ornamental grasses are an indespensible part of many successful garden designs and they certainly deserve to be used much more widely. As many gardeners are less familiar with this family of plants we have developed a range of collections to make choosing the correct varieties for different areas of the garden easier.
This grass collection is made up of 8 carefully chosen plants that will thrive in a partially shady border bringing texture and colour through the seasons and in a range of heights. They would look great planted together to cover approx 2 square metres depending on your chosen planting distance, or simply mixed in with other flowering plants to give contrast.
Your collection of 8 plants will be supplied as strong specimens in 2 litre pots with a discount of 20% applied compared to buying the same plants individually, they will all thrive in any well drained soil.
Each collection will contain one each of the following varieties:
Carex buchananii, fine coppery brown ‘floaty’ foliage. 60cm.
Carex Evergold, deep green and creamy yellow leaves. 30cm.
Deschampsia cespitosa, deep green foliage, clounds of silvery purple flower spikes. 150cm.
Koleria glauca, neat blue-green foliage and straw coloured contrasting flowers. 50cm.
Molinia Heidbraut, arching mounds of green foliage, highly decorative willowy flowerheads. 120cm.
Liriope muscari, deep green evergreen strap like foliage, gorgeous violet blue Autumn flowers on purple stems. 30cm.
Liriope Monroe White, deep green evergreen leaves, pure white flower spikes late in the season. 30cm.
Ophiopogon Black Dragon, the unmistakeable ‘Black Grass’, purple black strap like leaves, pale mauve flowers. 20cm.
(We may occasionally substitute one or more of the above varieties for other equally suitable evergreen grasses of the same or higher value should any of the varieties listed become sold out)
