Cortaderia

Cortaderia richardii full sun

Conjuring visions of Victorian grandeur, this majestic New Zealand native boasts a silky, feathered fountain of alabaster-colored, pendulous plumage bathed in subtly bronzed highlights. Loose, arching inflorescences grace the centrally arranged stems, which emerge from elegant, 5 ft. tall evergreen tussocks at varied angles. Toe Toe Grass’s slim, medium green foliage and flamboyant flowers serve as a focal point amid bright-hued perennials in the mixed border, in sunny moist spots at pond and streamside, or in a boisterous bouquet.

Blooms July–September.

Size: 9' 0"–10' 0" high x 8' 0" wide. Zone 7/8.

Cortaderia richardii (G-0473)

Customer Comment:

“Surfing the web for a special plant, I chanced on Digging Dog Nursery. I thought that any nursery that could create an Egyptian Gothic out of Anubis must have some pretty cool things going for it. I was right, and my first order was a pleasure. Well packed, healthy plants and extremely appealing people on the other side of the screen.”
