Quaking grass is a fine perennial grass which thrives in poor soils. It is slow growing and doesn’t compete well with other faster growing wildflowers and grasses, so it needs to be managed if in a soil which is too rich. It’s fine flowering stalks carry delicate heads which nod and tremble attractively. They have a silver sheen.
Sow in autumn or spring, but better from an autumn sowing. Cover lightly with vermiculite or sifted compost.
