Purple moor grass (Molinia caerulea subsp. arundinacea) is a clump-forming grass with lush basal foliage and leafless flowering stems that can reach 6 to 7 feet tall by bloom time in late summer. It’s a lovely see-through plant that can work well for adding height and movement to any part of a border, or as an accent plant, or in a mass. The entire plant turns golden yellow in fall—a beautiful bonus feature. Full sun to light shade, with soil that’s on the moist side. Perennial; Zones 5 to 9.
Collected in October 2020. At least 30 seeds.
