Eragrostis

Elliott’s Lovegrass

Eragrostis elliottii ‘Wind Dancer’ (G-0592)

Each 8.75

AVAILABLE SPRING 2020

Witness the ethereal haze of fluffy white flowers that float upon lax slender stems and you’ll see how the namesake came to be. While the native species inhabits the open woodlands, sandy enclaves and prairies of Georgia and the Carolinas, this undemanding warm season cultivar will bring a handsome fine textured mound to your backyard. Cushioned by flowing glaucous blue-green blades, the long-lasting gauzy panicles develop buff and straw tones as the season progresses, tantalizing birds, florists and gardeners through early winter. ‘Wind Dancer’ can be featured in large containers and as a soft-looking specimen in mixed borders, or it can be massed for native and meadow gardens plus planted on hillsides for erosion control. Love Grass prefers moderately moist well-drained abodes, but abides dry conditions, poor soil and black walnut roots. 

 

Blooms July–November

Size: 2' 0" – 3' 0" high x 2' 0" – 3' 0" wide.

It's a compelling collection of essays from international garden designers. Digging Dog Nursery co-owner Deborah Whigham is honored to have her article on the Autumnal Garden included.
