From low clumps of bright green grass sprout tall, erect stems carrying solid bunny-tail seed heads which persist right into winter. This lovely hardy plant from the cold reaches of the Crimea is a new, attractive, and most desirable introduction to cultivation.
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.
