Briza media | Quaking Grass
A simply delightful grass that forms short clumps of deep-green leaves with upright stems that bear delicate heart-shaped greenish-purple spikes in late spring and into summer. The foliage remains evergreen in mild regions. Brizia media is tolerant of most soil types. Trimming back when it gets a bit straggly will rejuvenate the plant. Being perennial, clumps are easily divided in either autumn or early spring. Drought tolerant once established and is even happy in salt spray and windy sites.
As a cut flower, it adds elegance to bouquets with its graceful nodding pendants. Beautiful dried as well, so if you are a Flower Farmer then this is a standout performer for your cutting gardens if you want something a little different for your clients.
Happy in full sun to partial shade.
Height 30cm with stems standing above and amongst the foliage - spreading to 80cm
Plant size: PB2 - Equivalent 1.2 litres
