Description :

Architectural plant - light and airy - fairy-like after the rain

The arundinacea subspecies is very different from the type species:

  • Height up to 2 metres;
  • Yellow gold autumn inflorescences;
  • and, above all, the inflorescences are majestic and superbly architectural, fairy-like after the rain or in the light of a low sun.


Very long-lived, they do need two to three years to flourish fully. But, without a doubt, your patience will be royally rewarded.

The Molinia ssp arundinacea are easy to grow: some sunshine and ordinary soil.

Hardiness: - 25°C.

We offer two cultivars chosen for their exceptional ornamental qualities:

  • Molinia caerulea ssp arundinacea 'Karl Foerster' is one of the oldest cultivars produced by the famous German breeder of the same name. Upright habit and very lightly arching inflorescences. Height: 2 metres.
  • Molinia caerulea ssp arundinacea 'Transparent' has inflorescences that arch more and grow less tall (180 cm).


And a bonus! Francis Peeters, Belgian TV and radio journalist talks to us about Molinia 'Transparent'. Read the article (in French).

Note on the photo: Molinia takes on a golden colouring in the middle of the autumn.
