Grasses adorn gardens and balconies

Grasses adorn gardens and balconies

With their colorful foliage, their elegant habit and for some their feathery inflorescences, the grasses create magnificent decorations. You can use them isolated on a lawn, in bedding, at the edge, or even in a container on your balcony.

Festuca glauca


Globe Planter ** Festuca glauca Intense Blue ** This blue fescue is a jumble of intense blue foliage. If you install it in full sun its color will only be more brilliant. In summer, it is adorned with erect ears that you can use in dry bouquets.

Wood reed


Willemse ** Orange cane reed (Calamagrostis arundinacea) ** Waving with the wind, its fine foliage slowly changes from yellow to the most beautiful orange over the months. An abundant vaporous flowering reveals itself in the middle of summer.
