Molinia caerulea is a terrific grass with erect leaves and spikes with purple flowers which stand high above the foliage. Because it has a gentle, see-through look it's ideal for the front of a border, filtering views to the plants behind. In autumn the foliage is electric yellow. There are plenty of excellent, alternative cultivars (all similarly deciduous), including the elegant 'Windspiel', the tall 'Skyracer' which hits 2m and whose leaves turn gold in October, and the superb 'Karl Foerster'. New plants can take a while to get established, but once they do, they quickly bulk up.
