A clumping grass-like perennial with beautiful blue-grey narrow foliage, which develops a soft weeping habit. Great as a border or pot plant, mass planted. It has spikes of lightly fragrant yellow flowers in summer. Frost and drought tolerant once established, great for easy care landscaping.

WHERE TO GET YOUR PLANT
Once you have found the plant that looks right for you, the next step is where to buy it.
Most nurseries stock a good range of plants, but due to space and supplies, they may not always have the plant that you are searching for in stock. If they don’t, they may be able to order it in for you if you request it.
Specialist nurseries are also able to give great advice, and if they don’t have the plant you have planned on, they can often suggest alternatives that will also work well for you.
