Molinia caerulea Moorhexe

Molinia

Moor Grass

Innovative landscape architect Wolfgang Oehme, who has included more than a million ornamental grasses in his designs since 1975, considers Molinias to be some of the very best performers of them all. Certainly the most kinetically exciting grass, Molinia’s sturdy stems hold the delicate, straw-colored panicles all season above dense, arching tufts of deep green foliage. To heighten the drama, give them plenty of room and a dark background.

This easily maintained cool season grass strikes a formal straight-up stance as its tidy narrow shaft of taut slim green blades presents unbowed needle-thin flower stems. The spiky gossamer-like open panicles yield dark purple inflorescences and plum brown seed heads, a stunning complement to the saffron-hued autumn foliar tones. Second-to-none for seaside or prairie schemes, a border, rockery or gravel garden, ‘Moorhexe’s compelling vertical silhouette effectively offsets lower growing plants like Sanguisorba 'Tanna' and Aster ‘Dream of Beauty’.

Blooms July–October

Size: 2' 0"–3' 0" high x 18" wide; hardy to zone 4.
