    A valuable new introduction. In early spring bright clumps of waxy cream-coloured blades erupt from the bare soil. In summer they age to green as the arching stems of pendulous seeds arise. One of the very few variegated/coloured grasses coming true from seed. ... Learn More

    A delightful dwarf grass with sizeable, hard spiky stars clustered atop short, triangular, cross-sectioned stems. As it is such a small member of this family it is ideal for a trough, rock-garden or edge of border. ... Learn More



    This is a delightful specimen which grows orange-red stems in stout clumps with wavy, whip-like seed heads. It makes an especially striking specimen in gravel or along a border's edge where the whippy stems can produce attractive patterns. The seeds are noticeable, as they are rounder than those of other similar members of this attractive group of grasses. ... Learn More

    One seedling from a batch of wild collected seed of Carex trifida from New Zealand was totally different. It is only about two feet tall with a mass of four foot long whips with terminal seedheads radiating in all directions. An amazing sight. ... Learn More

    The "True Fox Sedge" makes an impressive spreading clump with masses of thin arching whippy stems terminating in long spiky seedheads, which, although they are quite sharp, are probably not up to fending off a fox. ... Learn More

    This clump-forming, perennial grass bears large, drooping, graceful, translucent green seed heads, rather like flattened oats, hanging from slender, arching branches, the blue-green, bamboo-like leaves turning a bright yellow-gold, in autumn. The dried seed stalks are most attractive in flower arrangements. ... Learn More



    From New Zealand comes the amazing legendary "Hunangemoho Grass". Low, tidy clumps of sharp green blades erupt into thick, strong, arching stems, supporting massive, 18 inch divided golden sprays. Impresses all of our visitors growing strongly in our New Zealand gardens here. ... Learn More



    One of the most amazing grasses, this ornamental plant is usually grown for its pearl-like seeds which have been used for centuries as beads for jewelry. The seeds when ripe can be any colour from pearly grey to pure black and grow with a pre-made hole through the centre. One of the most attractive ornamental plants, it is perennial in warmer countries where it can often reach ten feet tall, but is easily grown as an annual in colder climes. Finally, in the Orient, the seeds are eaten as a cereal called "Adlay". ... Learn More

    Yes, a "Pampas Grass" from New Zealand! New Zealand was once connected to South America (as Gondwanaland), hence the "Toetoe" evolved. Seldom seen in cultivation, its substantial stems bear large woolly plumes. ... Learn More



    This perennial, mat forming grass makes a solid sward of low green leaves above which arise heads consisting of five radially aranged purple stems, rather resembling birds a foot. In the wild it occurs down the east coast of Africa from the Red Sea to the Transvaal, and most densely at the Uganda-Zaire border. ... Learn More



    This new and extremely lovely plant was discovered on the baking hot dry slopes surrounding Lake Chira, high on the island of Gran Canaria in the Canary Islands. Spreading stems sport numerous large spurred and spiked seedheads. Unlike many members of this family this plant obviously thrives in the dry! ... Learn More



    A delightful new-on-the-scene grass, bearing attractive, one-and-a-half inch diameter heads of spiky green and brown sea-urchin-like inflorescences. Will grow bigger in damp soil, but does perfectly well in the dry. ... Learn More



    This lovely giant grass is an attractive pale blue when young before becoming greenish grey or yellow as it ages. It bears small, light green, furry leaves and in warmer countries it is in leaf all year round. When fully-grown the maximum diameter of the stems or culms is around 5-6 inches or 13-16cm. and the lower parts are sometimes solid. The strong, lower erect, grey-green, slightly rough culms finally form a very tightly-packed clump. This sturdy tropical and subtropical, non-invasive, clumping species is very drought tolerant once established and is native to Southeast Asia where its edible shoots are used as food. It is also used extensively as a raw material in paper mills, and is the only bamboo timber that once cured, can be nailed without cracking, and commercially is a supreme material in building furniture. It is quite hardy in USA zones 9-10 ... Learn More

    Easily the bluest blue leaf of any plant we grow, this outstanding grass is native to the mountains of Southern Chile and Argentina where it forms a slow-growing, positively non-invasive, well-behaved clump of beautiful silvery, chalky, metallic-blue leaves, bearing taller stems of blue-grey flowers in early summer. It is best grown on its own with no surrounding competition in a well-drained rock garden or raised bed where it usually remains evergreen in mild winter regions, but foliage may also be cut back hard in severe winters. Very, very few good fertile seeds are ever collected here, and only one at a time. But what a fabulous plant this is! ... Learn More
