  1. Ornithogalum juncifolium

    Ornithogalum juncifolium is a hardy, evergreen, bulbous plant that has slender, grass-like bright-green leaves.

    It bears masses of flower spikes with small, white, star-like florets from September to March that are a sight to behold.

    The flowers make a delicate cut flower, and also attract insects to the garden.

    Plant in amongst grasses or as part of a mixed perennial bed.

    Cut back after flowering.

    Plant in full sun for best results, but it will also flourish with half a day’s sun or in semi-shade.

    Size 20 - 30cm

  2. Setaria sphacelata sericea

    Setaria sphacelata var. sericea is a hardy, evergreen, beautiful, neatly-tufted grass.

    It bears dense, golden inflorescences of hairy flowers from October to May that look like miniature bulrushes.

    It attracts birds to the garden and is the host plant of various butterfly species.

    Although this is a tall grass, it is neat and narrow and does not go wild.

    It makes a lovely form plant and can be planted in a grassland garden, as a backdrop to a colourful bed or mass-plant for a beautiful effect.

    As with most grasses, it should be cut back once a year and the thatch removed.

    It grows in sun or semi-shade, and needs regular watering.

    Size: 70cm to 1.2m
