Ornamental grasses for winter interest

Trentham Gardens in January

There are some great plant combination ideas at the Trentham Estate.

The Dutch plantsman, Piet Oudolf, designed the ‘Rivers of Grass’ and the ‘Floral Labyrinth’ at Trentham Gardens.

In the ‘Rivers of Grass’ area he planted two varieties of Molinia in large groups, one being Molinia Edith Dudszus.

Molinia’s change to a hay colour through the winter and so give interest with them swaying in the breeze.

He also planted Stipa gigantea which are impressive, large, architectural plants.

See our Ornamental Grasses range.
