You won’t be able to keep your hands off this irresistible ornamental grass that’s as super soft and silky to touch. Compact plants produce graceful grey-green blades with elongated heads that turn a delicate cream colour and soften with time. Fluffy wands catch slightly in the breeze; plant en masse for a real show. It looks stunning in pots or in the border, but is equally prized by florists as cut flower.
