    Commonly called Big Bluestem, Andropogon gerardii is an architectural grass with statuesque form. Well behaved and long lived, this grass is tough and requires little maintenance apart from a yearly cutback. The Autumn foliage colour in cooler areas is magnificent ranging through yellows to oranges and even reds. Deep rooted and drought tolerant once established, 'Big Bluestem' is wonderful as a backdrop or a feature. 1.5 - 2m in height. Grown for its form and Autumn appeal.

It is a warm season perennial that keeps its form well into Winter.

    Reddish brown foliage in a low mounding habit are the features of this grass. Carex comans 'Bronze Form' makes a stunning contrast to Ipomea batatas, Agastache 'Apricot Sprite' or 'Forever Summer Melon', as well as any silver foliage plant. New Zealand in origin, it is often used en masse in public space plantings. It thrives in moist, fertile, well drained soils. Excessive winter wet will cause the plants to rot. Great in pot culture. Approximately 20-30cm tall.

    Libertia ixioides 'Goldfinger'

    Buy 1 for $14.00 / Buy 5 for $60.00

    Native to New Zealand. Sometimes called NZ Iris. Brilliantly coloured with a prominent golden yellow central stripe. Maximum height between 40 and 60cm depending on conditions. Handles cold to -12ºC. Masses of pure white star shaped flowers are produced in mid Spring and rise to just above the foliage. This is followed by bright yellow seed capsules in the Autumn which contain brilliant orange seeds. We haven't seen seeds in our climate, perhaps needing cooler weather. Great container plant, specimen plant and wonderful in mass plantings. Requires good drainage and moisture. Out of interest, the name Libertia honours Marie-Anne Libert who was a Belgian botanist in the 19th century.

    We have been growing this lovely form of Miscanthus for a number of years. It is a seed grown variety from our own stock. Very upright in form to 1.6m with a fleck of variegation through the foliage, indicating part of its parentage being Miscanthus 'Strictus'. We have grown it as a backdrop to clipped spheres of Phillyrea angustifolia and Olea 'Bambalina'.

    A superior fine textured selection. We have this grass planted down a portion of our driveway. Brutal weather conditions in the Summer of 2018 and 2019 didn't warrant any extra water for this tough plant. It just kept on performing. Red tints in the flowers and strong yellow autumn foliage add extra interest to this already stunning grass.
