Briza media (Quaking grass or Dodder grass)

Known variously as Tommy Totters, Dithery Dock or Toddling Grass the flowers and seeds of this semi-evergreen, short-lived perennial grass quiver and shake on fine wiry stems about the neat grey-green foliage. It grows to between 50cms and 100cms in height.

Position: Best grown in full sun out of the cold winds, in any moist but well drained soil. Comb out dead growth in the spring and cut back as needed.

This is only meant as a guide. Please remember we're always on hand to give advice about plants and their frost hardiness.

Please remember that these coloured labels are only a rough guide.

General Point about Plant Hardiness: The commonly held belief that it's better to 'plant small' is perfectly true with herbaceous plants, but not necessarily true with woody plants. They need some 'wood' on them to survive severe cold - so plants of marginal hardiness in very cold areas should really be planted LARGER, rather than smaller, wherever possible.
