A superlative plant if given room to display its countless thin waving stems carrying masses of fine, almost smoke-like, purple-grey seed heads. In its African home it is known as "Weeping Love Grass".
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.
Common name:African Love Grass, Weeping Love Grass
