Flowers: June-September.  Plant in part shade.  HxS 75x60cm

Anemanthele lessoniana or Wind grass, Gossamer grass and Pheasant Tail Grass are three common names for this lovely New Zealand grass.  It provides year-round colour, movement and structure to the shade garden and forms a fountain-like clump of slender evergreen foliage which emerges green, but develops irregular yellow, orange and red spotting and streaking.  This colouring becomes even more intense during the colder months of the year and the overall effect is superb.  As well as being evergreen there is the added bonus of sprays of airy flower-heads in summer. Pot size 1.5 litre.

Care & Maintenance

Comb out any dead foliage in spring which is also the best time to split.
