Key information

Irish Green grass brings glossy, evergreen movement to an outside space. The long, mid-green leaves arch into mounds creating year-long interest. The grass is fantastic as a backdrop for other plants to ‘pop’ against or as the star of the design with a focus on its rich colour and form. In summer there are light brown seed heads which appear within the grass and offer the opportunity to collect seeds for future plants.
