Silver Tussock

Poa cita

Poa

Poa cita full sun

Silvery flower heads that sway just above lustrous fawn-green blades and an amazing drought tolerance hallmark this graceful New Zealand native. Found in open grasslands from coastal to subalpine regions, Silver Tussock produces a dense fine textured mound and upright arching stalks studded with slender, loosely arranged inflorescences. Easy-to-grow Poa cita looks best in drifts and knows how to persevere, doggedly enduring dry sunny niches, exposed windy sites, and an array of soil types.

Blooms July – September.

Size: 2-1/2' high x 2' 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.

Customer Comment:

“I just visited Digging Dog Nursery over the weekend, and was very impressed, both by their plants and their beautifully landscaped surroundings. They have a wide range of plants (many which you don't see elsewhere) and everything was healthy, vigorous and picture perfect. The word which comes to mind is "cherished." I bought a few of these beauties and they are blooming already!”
