Greater quaking grass is one of the best-known annual grasses and a great favourite with flower-arrangers who covet the graceful nodding heads of subtly coloured flowers, which are segmented and shaped like a small lantern. In the garden these nod gently in the breeze and remain decorative for some time before shedding their seeds. They are best grown in groups for impact, and may be sown where they are to grow. Alternatively, the flower stems may be cut and hung upside-down to dry slowly for indoor decorations over winter. Save some of the seeds for future years.
