Hi forumites, can anyone tell me what this grass is. It was in an NGS garden this summer but sadly it person who planted it could not remember the name?
I think that's Melica altissima 'Atropurpurea'
Oooh excellent nut cutlet, i'll google and see if i can buy one, thank you ?
That really is rather splendid isn't it? I wonder where I could find room ............... I see Beth Chatto sells them http://www.bethchatto.co.uk/grasses/melica/melica-altissima-atropurpurea.htm
I'm not really a fan of grasses but I do like this one and have seeds to sow next spring. I expect Plant World and Chiltern Seeds stock them too as that's where I usually buy my seeds.
I found Beth Chatto has it ?
