Sow some oatsStipa gigantea, or Giant Oat, is one of my favourite grasses. The giant flower heads start to emerge from the basal clump around May and shine through the entire summer and into winter, catching every ray of sunshine. The tall stems reach up to 2.4m high, and are so dense that they make a perfect summer screen for a patio or seating area, particularly when backlit by the evening sun. It is also wonderfully useful for cut or dried arrangements.

Incorporate grassy accents Positioning grasses so they catch the low evening light will make them glow and add an extra dimension to their translucent seedheads, which will shimmer and dance in the sun’s rays. This is true of all grasses, particularly those with prominent seedheads, such as the Stipa gigantea shown in this image. The foliage of grasses can also be very effective as it turns golden in the autumn.
