• Sesleria autumnalis - Autumn Moor Grass


    "Sesleria autumnalis, commonly called autumn moor grass, is a cool season, clump-forming ornamental grass which typically grows 8-12" tall with narrow flower spikes rising above the foliage clump in summer to 18" tall. Flowers give way in autumn to silvery-white inflorescences. Attractive, narrow, yellow-green foliage (to 3/16" wide). This grass is indigenous to the moors of Europe and puts on its best flowering display in autumn, hence the common name." (Missouri Botanical Garden)


    "Easily grown in average, dry to medium, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Tolerates a wide range of soils and drought. Somewhat intolerant of high summer heat and humidity. Cut clumps back to the ground in late winter." (Missouri Botanical Garden)
