Availability : Available

Description :

Excellent for decoration, en masse or on its own

Molinia caerulea is native to Europe and Asia where it is found in cold damp environments: peat bogs, marshes, pond sides or mountain meadows.

In the garden, this astonishing grass is appreciated for its tall, fan-like inflorescences and its many uses:

- planted in groups in wide bands to create a contemporary effect;
- scattered through a prairie garden, it adds a whimsical, natural look;
- planted on its own in a perennial bed, it's a magnificent focus plant.

Molinia caerulea 'Heidebraut’ grows into a slender tuft with an upright habit. Its inflorescences, which appear in the summer, bend only very slightly. Height: 75 to 120 cm. Luminous straw-yellow autumnal colouring.

Grow in the sun or light shade in ordinary, acid to alkaline soil.

Watering from time to time in late spring will encourage its full decorative potential.

In warm climates, it should be planted in partial shade.
