Chionochloa flavicans

Chionochloa

Chionochloa flavicans full sun  partial shade

Gallivanting around New Zealand’s North Island on cliffs and rocky outcrops, this graceful Cortaderia relative sports lustrous dark green tussocks. Creamy silvered plumes elegantly drape on lax stems, which emanate from the cascading, loosely arranged evergreen foundation. A versatile long-lived grass whose steadfast disposition handles drought and an array of soils, Chionochloa flavicans can stand alone or be grouped as a fluid-looking ground cover, especially when planted on a hillside.

Blooms July – August.

Size: 3' 0"–4' 0" high x 3' 0"–4' 0" wide. Zone 7/8.

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.
