Eragrostis elliottii (*) is native to North America (Georgia, Carolina), where it grows in light understory, sandy areas and meadows. This love grass forms a wide clump of fine grey-green leaves with bluish highlights. The show begins in early summer when its inflorescences emerge from the foliage to develop over the weeks into sumptuous, transparent cascades of light.
To create a romantic effect, we use love grass combined with white-flowering rose bushes.
Try planting Eragrostis elliottii 'Wind Dancer' in an informal seaside garden in wide bands to dance in the breeze.
Preferably grow in the sun in ordinary, light, mainly sandy soil, which is well-drained in winter.
Avoid heavy, damp, clay soils. Hardiness: -5°C / -8°C
(*) this plant was probably named in honour of the American botanist Stephen Elliott (1771-1830).
