Grass - Stipa Gigantea

This is the largest of all feather grasses, and certainly one of the most elegant and stately of all ornamental grasses, forming relatively insignificant basal clumps of narrow leaves. From these arise long, strong stems holding huge, loose panicles of golden spikelets with dangling awns which persist well into winter.

Sow at any time in a well-lit position into a good, soil-based compost. Cover seeds thinly and keep moist at around 15 degrees C. Some New Zealand species can be very slow indeed and may need cooler temperatures before they will come up. Grass seedlings should be potted on and grown on singly, or in clumps for more rapid establishment of a large specimen.
