GRASSES & GRASS-LIKE PLANTS

Luzula pilosa ‘Igel’ – This tiny grass forms cute domes composed of glossy green hairy blades. Good in a rock garden, a pot or front of the border and is small enough for a trough. ‘Igel’ is adaptable from full sun to open shade. A fast-grower in moisture retaining to draining soils. This would be lovely as a "palette cleansing" plant in its own bonsai pot between bonsai specimens. Established pot grown plant from division.
