Autumn Moor Grass

Sesleria autumnalis

A perennial native of the hills and mountains of southeastern Europe, this meadow beauty forms soft tufts of lime green foliage. Attractive light tan to silvery-white flower heads bloom atop flowering spikes, high above the foliage during late summer and fall. Perfectly suited for filling spaces between larger ornamental species, or planted en masse to build a textured, shimmering, informal groundcover.

Common Nursery Plant Forms

We use plant forms to describe how a plant has been grown in our nursery. Here are some common nursery plant forms explained.

A bush or multi refers to a shrub or small tree grown with multiple stems.

A standard has been trained to have a single trunk.
Many bush/multi plants are also available in standard form, so be sure to check the form when you add plants to your cart.

A column refers to a tree or shrub grown into a tall, narrow shape.

An espalier is a plant trained to grow in a two-dimensional form against a trellis.

Staked plants will be tied to a wooden or plastic stake during the growing process. This technique is generally used on vines but is sometimes used for certain trees or shrubs.
