Description
 
At garden cocktail parties where the design elite and the grass cognoscenti compare notes over a cool Negroni perfectly mixed with Punt e Mes vermouth, this is often alluded to as their favorite grass. Thin green supple leaves are imbued with a simple timeless grace and the delicate seed-like white flowers are the perfect contrast.  Our thanks to that proper English gentleman David Mason for sharing this gem with us.  This was beautifully grown at the old Hedgerows Nursery where it edged each side of the arbor path going effortlessly from full west sun to a good deal of shade.  Cut back in early spring for a fresh start.
