Sesleria 'Greenlee Hybrid'
Greenlee’s Hybrid Moor Grass
This grass is a hybrid of unknown parentage that appeared in our old Pomona nursery. It caught our eye as having physical attributes similar to a few different Seslerias.
The Sesleria 'Greenlee Hybrid' can be used as single specimens in small gardens and perennial borders or in groups and masses in larger gardens. It is a dependable, large-scale ground cover grass.
Plant 12-18" on-center depending on the desired effect and the addition of bulbs and flowering accents. It is best planted in fall or spring from plugs or pots but it can be planted any time of the year in all but the coldest climates as long as moisture is sufficient.
Grows well by the coast, but is untested in 1st exposure sea coast.
Alpine/Altitude: Good to 8000 feet
Not recommended for steep slopes in hot inland valleys but would work on lightly shaded slopes as long as moisture is sufficient.
Grows best with regular water and will not tolerate extended period of heat and drought. Drought tolerant in coastal settings. Plantings in hotter inland valleys will need more water to look good in the hot summer months.
A very low maintenance grass - looks great all year round!
Does best with a light trimming in fall or early spring to promote new growth. It can be trimmed any time of year if foliage needs refreshing.
Diseases and pests: None!
