Mauritania Vine Reed/Rope Grass

Ampelodesmos mauritanicus

Ampelodesmos

Ampelodesmos mauritanicus full sun

A Mediterranean denizen, this stately grass yields fine textured evergreen blades tough enough to fashion ties, ropes and baskets, and large enough to make an imposing focal point in your mixed border. Lofty upward arching stems race skyward, asserting mostly one-sided pearl-colored panicles above a dark green clump-forming mound, while airy purple-flushed inflorescences invite birds and gardeners alike. Robust Rope Grass maintains its majestic composure throughout the winter and requires a sheltered, sunny position with well-drained soil.

Blooms July–November.

Size: 9' 0" high x 3' 0"–4' 0" wide; hardy to zone 8.

Ornamental Grasses: Autumnal Garden Stars, Plant for Outstanding October Oomph!

Celebrated headliners of the late show!

Offering superb versatility, ornamental grasses become poetry in motion on gusty days. They are best situated so their fluid shimmering inflorescences, bathed in amber, sable or smoky rose and purple shades, are backlit and set aglow by the afternoon sunlight. Most look fantastic in fresh or dried arrangements, while others produce welcome seed heads that birds adore. Be sure to browse our online selections of ornamental grasses.

Plant for Outstanding October Oomph!

You may wish to include one or more of these easily grown herbaceous perennials, ornamental grasses, shrubs or trees that wield plenty of October flair.

Customer Comment:

“I held my breath and opened the box (after a long delay in opening the delivered plants, due to catastrophic flooding), dug down through the damp paper shreds and found all the plants alive!!!! I'm so relieved. I had to write and thank you for the hardiness of the plants, and for packing them so carefully.... Thank you, Digging Dog. I'll be back.”
