Rattlesnake Grass

Briza media

Briza

Briza media full sun  partial shade

People delight in this Mediterranean native, and its playfully noisy nature has earned it amusing names like cowquakes, didder and dillies; it earns “Rattlesnake” for the rattlelike, heart-shaped inflorescences. On delicate, swaying stems, the small flowers emerge a shimmery green highlighted with red, and dry to a light straw color.

Medium green, finely textured blades form dense, long-lived evergreen clumps, and forgivingly put up with winds, drought and salt spray.

Blooms April–June.

Size: 2' high x 12" wide; hardy to zone 4.

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.

In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden!

Customer Comment:

“Ordered a selection of plants from Digging Dog earlier this year: campanula, ajuga, columbine, etc. All looked great, with healthy root systems. They've all settled in well and are thriving. I will order from them again.”
