A lovely willowy grass with curved leaves and spikes of flower pannicles in summer. These grasses look great in a border, as edging and as stabilising ground cover, where they create movement and light into a garden. They look good most of the year, flowering in summer and the dried-out leaves and flowers retain their shape in winter. Plants reach a height of 1-1.5m and grow into dense tufts.
African Love Grass comes originally from Southern Africa and the leaves are used to make traditional baskets.
African Love Grass grows best in full sun and any soil – they can grow in very basic and highly acidic soil and coastal areas, so are very adaptable. They seem to be just hardy for the UK,growing in warmer gardens, but if you cut back and mulch the plants they may survive quite cold conditions. They can also be grown as annuals.
