Eragrostis trichodes


Availability : Available

Description :

A vaporous cloud!

Sand love grass is endemic to the Great Plains of North America and from August onwards produces a multitude of pink spikes which look like vaporous clouds wafting in the slightest breeze.

In a cottage garden we contrast this grass for shape and colour with Sedum 'Red Cauli', Achillea ' Coronation Gold', and the all new shrub sage Salvia microphylla' 'Trelissik Creamy Yellow'.

In a contemporary garden we like to highlight its wavy habit by mass planting in the foreground of a bed of Panicum virgatum.

Its inflorescences sometime turn golden and make magnificent bouquets which can be kept for a long time.

Very drought resistant and sun-loving Eragrostis trichodes is easy to grow, hardy (-25°C) and needs very little maintenance. Once established, this grass is happy with ordinary, light, well-drained soil.

Prune the inflorescences at the end of winter. Re-seeds itself.
