Pure Prairie Ornamental Grasses - Flax, Wheat, & Starburst Millet
These annual species of decorative grasses are very easy to grow and are extremely attractive when planted in the border or used to create a focal point at the edge of a pond or lawn. Plant seed in clumps or groups for the best effect.
This package contains:
Flax (Linum usitatissimum) Features smoky blue flowers atop graceful stems that dance in the breeze. Stems are covered with narrow leaves and capped with 2cm flowers that bloom for weeks. Grows 40-80cm. in height. Plant in bunches to fill in flowerbeds. When dried, flax makes attractive filler for indoor arrangements.
Black Bearded Wheat (Triticum durum) A majestic grass topped with light coloured heads and reddish=brown to black awns. Awns tend to be darker with warmer weather. Slender stems can grow to a meter in height and heads range from 5-20cm. long. Low maintenance and well suited to periods of drought. Add variety to your garden and dried arrangements. This wheat is also popular for weaving.
Starburst Millet (Panicum miliaceum) Delicate corn-like stalks with blooms that resemble a loose cluster of tan beads. Grows 100-150cm. in height and develops quickly into a beautiful backdrop for flowerbeds. When dried, use this millet to make attractive arrangements or wreaths and hang outdoors to attract birds to this natural feeder.
