Tell Your Friends:


Melinis nerviglumis is a very hardy, semi-deciduous, dense, tufted, perennial grass with beautiful grey leaves.
The gorgeous plumes of shiny fluffy pink to red seeds appear all year round and attract small seed eating birds.

It makes an attractive addition to a grassland garden planted in sun or semi-shade.
Planted en masse, with the sun shining on the fluffy spikes, they are a wonderful sight.

Plant in full sun or semi-shade, in well drained soil.

As with all grasses it should be cut back in late winter and raked to keep it healthy.

Size 35 to 80cm
