This wonderful textural grass-like plant forms a compact mound of narrow green, hairlike foliage with an arching habit. White flowers form at the tips, giving the effect of fibre optic lights. Prefers an evenly moist soil.

Unique corkscrew of green and gold striped stems on easy to grow evergreen, clumping ornamental rush. Blooms late summer to fall. Water loving and winter hardy.

 

This ornamental switch grass cultivar features some of the best burgundy-red foliage of the many panicum cultivars currently available. Foliage emerges bluish-green but rapidly turns burgundy-red (by late June) to form a compact, narrow, erect, 3' tall clump of foliage which is topped in summer by finely-textured, reddish-pink flower panicles which hover over the foliage like an airy cloud. Panicles turn beige as the seeds mature in fall with the seed plumes persisting well into winter. Foliage also turns beige in fall and provides good winter interest.

An extremely showy variation of the ever-popular Purple Fountain Grass. This forms a midsized mound of arching deep burgundy-purple leaves, each striped hot pink along the edges to add that extra flash of colour. Arching red bottlebrush flowers appear in late summer, gradually ageing to tan. Annual in colder climates. USPP#18504: unlicensed propagation prohibited.

 

Bluer-than-blue densely tufted foliage that forms neat mounds topped by flowers of the same blue that mature to tan. More compact and keeps shape better than ‘Elijah Blue’. Drought tolerant once established.

 

This plant is commonly known as corkscrew rush because it features a tuft of cylindrical, tightly-spiraled, corkscrew-like green stems which uncoil as they grow and spread out in all directions. Clumps typically grow to 14-18” tall with a similar spread. Insignificant, tiny, yellowish green to pale brown flowers appear in compact clusters at or slightly below the stem tips in summer. Corkscrew stems are often cut for floral arrangements. The spiral-type rushes are unique and interesting foliage plants whose corkscrew-like foliage provides texture and contrast to gardens.

This greyish blue, medium-sized grass has thin ribbon-like leaf blades that fade to fluffy, silvery seed heads in late summer. Reddish orange autumn color. These blooms are great for floral arrangements, fresh or dried. Suited for the border or in large groupings.

Northwind Tall Switch Grass is an easy to grow clump forming ornamental grass. It forms a tall, narrow mound of olive-green leaves, bearing airy heads of tiny green flowers in late summer. Fall colour is golden, fading to tan and attractive in the garden all winter long.

The Blues Little Bluestem is a deciduous, clumping grass with blue-green foliage that turns bronze to flaming orange in the fall. Flower spikes emerge above the foliage, displaying fluffy seed heads that persist into fall. This plant is great as mass planting, ground cover or specimen in borders and rock gardens.

Giant ornamental grass with dense green foliage near the base. Tall bamboo shoot like stems reach high above the foliage to produce the flowers. The tan color spikes change to a silvery plume for the winter giving an incredible show. Use as tall screen or a dramatic accent. Drought tolerant once established.
