Originating from China, Japan, Korea and Taiwan
Beautiful compact hummocks of arching, serene, slender leaves form clumps that cascade to ground level. Incredibly useful for bordering paths and contrasting with taller upright species, its dainty leaves are beautiful silver-green, adding to its diaphanous character. Plumes of light silver pink flowers, held well above the foliage, appear in late summer, darkening to russet brown before turning a tan colour, providing an architectural display well into winter.
Robust and easy to grow in any soil type in full sun and in coastal conditions.
