Add movement to your borders by planting grasses. Statuesque or short and tufty, grasses are an excellent foil for September flowers. They provide texture and can be woven through to unite planting schemes.
There are many to choose from, one of my favourite is Stipa Gigantica, tall and graceful with its ephemeral oat-like yellow plumes, this grass creates a fine back drop for any perennial combination.
This grass is easy to grow, preferring full sun and well drained soil, reaching a height 2m.
Vicky's Top Tip
Trim in spring and comb through to remove any dead foliage. Be sure to wear gloves as leaves can be sharp.
