This is Spangle Grass or Indian Wood Oats, a tall woodland grass with broad green leaves and open panicles of flat, jade green flowers, resembling a small bamboo. It is grown for its flowers which ripen to a polished leather colour in hot summers. Native to N. America and Mexico. Deciduous and now rare in its native habitat but thrives in woodsy gardens. Tolerant of poor soils, but prefers moist, fertile soils. One of the more shade tolerant of the ornamental grasses, it will self-seed. Cuts well for displays. Organically grown in peat free compost. Pot size 1.5 litre / 9cm
