Briza maxima

Greater Quaking Grass

  • New in 2014
Pretty and architectural, the wonderful Greater Quaking Grass produces shapely nodding seed heads on delicate stems, which sway and rustle in the slightest breeze. As summer progresses the green stems and seed heads slowly age to a golden straw colour and remain throughout the autumn for a long season of interest. Grow Briza maxima in beds, borders and containers, where the tall swaying stems create a relaxed and informal feel. Quaking grass plants also make a fantastic addition to fresh or dried flower arrangements. Height: 45cm (18"). Spread: 25cm (10").
