Fountain Grass Cassian

Graceful, flowing fountain grasses are versatile and beautiful plants for sunny, dry landscapes. This dwarf fountain grass works well in tight, small spaces, in borders or perennial gardens. It is similar in appearance to Pennisetum alopecuroides Hameln, but Cassian is a foot taller. ‘Cassian’ produces cream-pink tinted bottlebrush blooms in July that persist well into September. A palette of oranges and reds appears in October.

Society Garlic

Society garlic is an attractive ornamental plant from South Africa whose leaves have a garlicky odor. Southern gardeners can grow it year-round outdoors; it tolerates summer heat well and blooms for months. The plants do best in full sun and in light, sandy soil. Plants grown in part shade may send up a few flowers, but the bloom period will be shorter. Full sun is a must for good flowers! A leafless stalk 1 or 2 feet tall holds seven to 20 flowers above the foliage in an umbel. Society garlic, excellent as an ornamental, has an alter ego in the kitchen. The leaves can be chopped like those of garlic chives and added to stir-fries, salads, soups or egg dishes, wherever you’d like a hint of garlic.

Generally blooms all throughout summer, and well into the early fall. Re-blooming can be further increased & encouraged through the removal of old, expired blooms & stalks. Very low maintenance – it is one of the taller daylilies at maturity. Aztec Gold is a great bloomer - and its vibrant golden yellow color is virtually unmatched in any other daylily.
