Calamagrostis brachytricha is a beautiful hardy perennial grass that gives long spell of interest.
This is one of the most splendid and highly ornamental grass. Clumps of arching, glossy green leaves with feathery flower panicles. At first these are beautifully tinted with a strong purple-red colour before fading to pink and silver-grey at the end of the season.
Height 80 to 90cms (32 to 36in)
This useful ornamental grass is tolerant of a wide range of soils and growing conditions and is one of the few flowering grasses that can be grown in shade, a rare trait for a large flowering grass. In full sun the habit will be tighter and the flowering more profuse. They do best in moist, fertile soil, are happy in damp conditions and can survive in poorly drained and even clay soil.
Sow indoors in late winter to early spring or sow in autumn.
Sow the seeds on to the surface of a free-draining, moist seed-sowing compost and cover with 3 to 4mm (¼ in) of vermiculite. Keep at around 15 to 20°C (60 to 68°F) Germination should take place in two to four weeks. Images sell!
