Cotton Grass (Eriophorum angustifolium)

Also known as 'Bog Cotton' or 'scirpus Angustifolius'.

A beautiful native plant with grass-type foliage and fluffy heads of white cotton-like flowers. The wool used to be used for stuffing pillows and making candle wicks. It is very hardy and can often be seen on Scottish moors.

Little maintenance is required. Trim just above the water surface after foliage has died back in the Autumn to tidy.

Plant in full sun to partial shade between 0cm and 20cm deep.

  • Flowering period: June to September
  • Mature height: 30cm to 50cm
  • Growth rate: slow
