ERAGROSTIS ELLIOTTII 'WIND DANCER'
A clump forming narrow grey/blue leaved grass which produces long open panicles of white flower spikelets in summer. As the name suggests these panicles float and dance in the wind on breezy summers days. Ideal for the mid to back of a border.
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:Love grass, Field love grass, Blue love grass, Elliott's love grass.
