Long tentacle-like leaves spill outwards from the central core, edged in bright yellow stripes.
Rekohu Sunrise gets its name from the Mauri language used on the islands around New Zealand where it was first discovered. Its broad green leaves have a tint of blue in them, which helps their yellow streaked edges to shine. At full maturity, the Rekohu Sunrise’s leaves can reach over 120cm in length. Small brown spiked flowers bloom upwards in the summertime.
Ornamental Grasses are chosen for their decorative qualities and whether used indoors or outdoors, they can bring a striking diversity to your garden. From round shrubs to tall walls of quivering spikes, ornamental grasses bring new shapes and textures that will contrast against the twisted roots of trees and the blooms of traditional plants and flowers. They are also becoming increasingly popular due to their hardiness against the British weather and their ability to hold their colour through autumn and winter.
