Molinia caerulea subsp. arundinacea (Purple Moor Grass) [50 Seeds]

(1 customer review)


Germination Information: I recommend these seeds for experienced seed-sowers only, because they may require patience. The general recommendation is to surface-sow in warm conditions and leave the seeds there for about a month. If no seedlings appear, chill the pot for about 6 weeks, and then put it in cool conditions for sprouting. It’s probably easiest to start them indoors in mid to late winter for their warm period, then set the pot outside so the seeds can sprout whenever conditions are right.

Transplant the seedlings (in groups) to individual pots when they’re 1 to 2 inches tall. Use groups of 6 to 8 or so if you want bigger clumps faster, or 3 or 4 per pot if you want a larger number of starter plants.

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 mid September 2023. At least 50 seeds. Shipping to US addresses only.
