Briza media is a beautiful perennial grass with purple tinted foliage and locket shaped flower heads. In summer the flowers are green and purple and they gradually fade through golden shades to a pale straw colour. Briza media is a lovely grass to include in wildflower meadows with Cornflowers, Poppies, Ox Eye Daisies and Field Scabious . It’s also good in mixed borders with flowering perennials, great in the cutting garden for cut flower production and lovely for dried flowers too.
Like most grasses Briza media is easy to grow and quickly produces masses of stems for cutting.
