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

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.

Care & Maintenance

Remove spent flower heads unless you want them to seed about.  Cut the foliage hard back to within 8cm/3ins of the ground around March.
