Cotton Grass is a small genus of some 25 herbaceous species in the Sedge family (Cyperaceae) from the Northern hemisphere. They are ocurring in humus rich, always slightly wet soils in marshes and alongside bogs. Several species have become quite rare for the ongoing destruction of their habitats. These are beautiful, non-invasive grasses with elegant stems topped by ornamental seed heads with fine silky white hairs similar to a fluffy cotton pad. Easily grown in any humus rich, slightly acid and always wet soil in a sunny spot. Ideal for the border of a pond.
Sow seeds flat in any humus rich, always slightly wet soil in pots outside in a protected spot. Seeds require a prolonged cooling period prior to germination in late spring. Carefully transplant young plants from late summer to autumn to their final spot.
All are USDA Climate Zone 6.
