Autumn Moor Grass

Plant Type: Grass - Ornamental

Cool season, clump-forming ornamental grass 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. This grass is indigenous to the moors of Europe and puts on its best flowering display in autumn, hence the common name.

Sesleria autumnalis Plant Care:

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.

USDA Hardiness Zone: Zone 5 (-20/-10F)
