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.

Dark green ribbon-like blades and golden fall color distinguish ‘Staefa’s spiffy 2 to 3 ft. tall mound that debuts a bounty of stiff-stemmed predominately upright airy panicles. Named after a lakeside Swiss city, this stately Molinia can edge a trail, be planted mid-border or viewed from afar, where its captivating fine textured blooms promise a graceful visual feast, either glowing in the afternoon sun, waltzing with the wind or accompanying Sedum ‘Septemberglut’ and Filipendula ‘Venusta Alba’.

Size: 4' 0"–5' 0" high x 3' 0" wide; hardy to zone 4.
