Molinia caer. arundinacea ‘Skyracer’


Tall Moor Grass

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 8.280.100


Tall Moor Grass is a dramatic and unusual species that is superb as a specimen, as well as in the perennial border. This selection forms a medium-sized clump of cascading green leaves, bearing very tall, arching stems of airy yellow flowers, almost like a fountain in effect. Flower stems are in nearly constant motion from even the slightest breeze. Spectacular bronzy-gold fall colour. Trim back in late winter. Clumps may be easily divided in early spring. Appreciates a moist site. Introduced by Kurt Bluemel.
