Panicum Virgatum ‘Dallas Blues’:

This ornamental grass is one of my favourites as I love it’s silvery bluey plumes in October and blue-green leaves during summer. It will grow to quite a height (210cm) so is best to plant either at the back of the border or as several solitary features dotted around your other plants. The plumes flower in a gorgeous pale purple in September and will eventually look like the ones in the photo on the left. I took this picture really early in the morning when the sun had started to appear! Magical.
