Carex flagellifera 'Auburn Cascade'Carex flagellifera 'Auburn Cascade' a selection discovered and named on our nurseries. Colour and form are the best attributes for this New Zealand sedge. As a young plant, the bronze-red, fine-textured leaves are very attractive and as it matures, the upright leaves start to arch over to the ground. It is hard to believe that this ornamental grass, Carex flagellifera 'Auburn Cascade' is both hardy, evergreen and can be grown in full sun. When grown in shade, the leaves appear a more reddish-green colour. This sedge will quietly enhance any suitable landscape for many years with minimal care. The high arching clumps are very effective when planted quite close together.

Pennisetum macrourum

Pennisetum macrourum (African Feather Grass) is a tussock-forming grass that is native to South Africa, but has naturalised in Australia and New Zealand. Its leaves are pale green on the surface with a silvery underside. In summer, clumps produce long, thin, bristly flower spikes resembling rats' tails. These start off a pale white and gradually turn to a yellow straw colour. This variety isn't completely hardy and needs a sheltered position with free-draining soil to thrive. If you live in a cold area, grow in large pots and move into a cool greenhouse over the winter months.
