Description

This beautiful, dwarf, dainty and delicate grass makes a fabulous miniature dome of fine, wiry stems when grown in rows alongside a pathway or on its own in gravel. In winter the clumps of dry brown stems are retained making attractive additions to the winter garden. It is native to Iran and mostly grows in the Irano-Torani and Hirkani regions.

Sowing Advice

Sow at any time, in a well-lit position, into a good, soil-based compost. Cover seeds thinly and keep moist at around 15 degrees C or 60 degrees F. Some New Zealand species can be very slow indeed and may need cooler temperatures before they will come up. Grass seedlings should be potted on and grown on singly, or in clumps for more rapid establishment of a large specimen.
