Description
Reed Sweet Grass is a tall perennial grass that provides superb cover for wildfowl and other wildlife. Throughout summer, upright stems are thrown up bearing delicate sprays of brown flowers. With a vigorous habit, British native Glyceria maxima is perfect for creating natural looking planting schemes around large ponds and wetlands. Height: 80cm (32"). Spread: 100cm (39"). Planting depth: Zones 2 & 3 to 25cm (10") below water level.

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
Grow Glyceria in the margins of ponds with the crown submerged to a maximum depth of up to 25cm (10") below water level. Choose a position in full sun.
More Info
Glyceria requires virtually no maintenance. Leave the old stems to die back naturally before cutting back in autumn to just above water level.
