Panicum elegans
Cloud Grass, Fibre Optics Grass
Highly recommended!
Type/Hardiness Annual Grass, Half hardy
Flowering period July-September
Height 12-24in/30-60cm
Light preference Full sun
Soil preference Not too fussy
Sowing time/depth Spring, 0.25in/6mm
As the seed heads emerge, they resemble fibre optics! Lovely plant for floral arrangements. Remove seedheads if you don't want the grass to self seed, but unlike some grasses is not difficult to control - roots are shallow so young, unwanted plants can be removed easily.
Sowing and/or growing instructions
Best sown direct in a sunny position, raking lightly into the soil. Requires light to germinate, so don't cover with more than 0.25in/6mm of soil. Grows well in gravel.
