Growing 'Tardiflora' Tufted Hair Grass

These grasses are tough and with a little help will establish almost anywhere there is half decent soil, and - unlike most grasses - prefer partial shade. Good to plant beside water.

Like any grass, they benefit from being sheared down to low mounds, every late Winter or early Spring to make way for new growth.

In Your Garden Design

A heavenly mass of swaying silvery-purple spikelets, this grass is tailor-made for a fashionable new perennial border or a woodland garden as it is one of the only grasses that grows in a shady area. It is fantastic for overlooked urban gardens and makes a great companion to ferns, hellebores and hostas. It is great choice for adding structure and height to any garden and lovely in a border with Asters or Heleniums, and is an excellent partner to Agapanthus and Astrantia. For for fans of soft, naturalistic prairie style planting this is an ideal choice adding in other grasses and mixed herbaceous perennials such as our Back of the Border collection.
