It’s fair to say that we haven’t had the greatest summer so far but – without wishing to tempt fate – it seems like the warmer weather is finally here. And as the sun starts to shine, our beautiful flowering grasses are now in full bloom.
We have three varieties in particular that are truly striking – the Pennisetum Villosum, with white fluffy heads; the long and elegant Pennisetum Orientale ‘Tall Tails; and the smaller Pennisetum Orientale with a beautiful pink flower.
Apart from regular watering and full sun, these plants are extremely low maintenance. They look lovely in mixed herbaceous borders but also make a unique alternative to bedding plants in garden pots, particularly brightly coloured ones which contrast beautifully with the grasses.
All three varieties will remain in flower until November, when they simply need cutting back until about March when they will come back. What could be easier?
Visit our online shop where you can order these grasses for £5.50 each. We promise you won’t be disappointed.
