As its name suggests, Stipa gigantea is amongst the largest grass types to be found, and as a feather grass, it is one of the most striking ornamental plants to include in a garden.
Arching stems of glistening, golden, oat-like flowerheads appear above clumps of slender, grey-green leaves. This majestic semi-evergreen grass is an excellent specimen plant for a sunny, mixed or new perennial border. The leaves are strong and thin, and it displays a wonderful plume of oat-like flowers that emerge purple and mature to a golden yellow by autumn, making it the perfect choice for introducing movement, it looks stunning under-planted with the rich purple Alliums and a host of other plants such as Sedum, Heleniums, Echinacea and more. It will thrive in fertile well-drained soil ideally in a sunny position.
Supplied in approx. 3 Litre containers - large established specimens.
