Description

Purple moor grass is an important feature of British heathland, bogs and moors. ‘Moorhexe’ is a form selected for gardens with narrow grey-green leaves that turn russet-coloured in autumn and masses of floaty purple flowers. Looks great planted where the low autumn light can shine through it.

Care Tips

Deciduous: old stems can be left through autumn for their architectural interest and then cut down at the end of winter before new growth emerges.
