MILIUM EFFUSUM 'AUREUM'
The best golden grass growable from seed has dazzlingly bright, canary-yellow leaves. Of its best in spring and especially in a shady spot. In commerce "Bowles' Golden Grass" is often the most expensive grass seed in the world!
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.
