Briza maxima | Greater Quaking Grass

Regular price $12.00 Save $-12.00

An ornamental grass Briza maxima also known as 'The Greater Quaking Grass' has blue green leaves and graceful hanging flower heads of large heart shaped lockets that nestle amongst the green grass like clumps that are tinged with pink from late spring to mid summer. This annual Briza prefers richer soil than most grasses and will tolerate semi shade well.

Briza is excellent as a cut flower and lasts 10-14 days in a vase. It can also be dried and makes interesting focal or secondary flowers in dried arrangements. It is particularly useful at Christmas when the stems and seed-heads can be sprayed silver, and gold. To dry, gather when the heads have changed colour but before they start to break up, cut the flower at the height of bloom and hang upside down in a cool, dark place to dry. If dried correctly they will hold their colour well and are a lovely biscuity colour. Flowers in late summer and into autumn. Tolerant of most well drained fertile soils.

Hardy Annual | May self sow, so remove the seed heads if you do not want it to. 

Height 45cm x 30cm Wide
