One of the best medium-sized garden grasses.

Originally from rocky Alpine environments, Helictotrichon is one of the best blue-leaved grasses. We like to plant it on its own in the garden, in mass with a distance of 90 cm between plants or in patio pots that are at least 35 cm in diameter.

Helictotrichon sempervirens 'Saphirsprudel' is a great improvement on the type species and has bright silvery-blue foliage and better rust resistance. Keeps some of its leaves in winter.

Height of the inflorescences: 75 cm.
