Tall Purple Moor grass    (Molinia arundinacea) 'Transparent'

When sunlight and moisture settle on ‘Transparent’s sheer, soft floral haze, umpteen loosely spaced tiny purple seed heads evoke an exquisite piece of frozen lace. The low, well-groomed mound of ribbon-like green blades gives way to tall, ultrafine arching stalks plus aptly named, unbranched inflorescences that linger high above the leaves. Swayed by the slightest breeze, this easily grown Molinia’s flowers furnish a sophisticated purple-tinged transparency near summer’s end, while golden tones imbue the entire plant when cooler nights arrive.
