Cotton Grass

Eriophorum angustifolium


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

This plant is evergreen and will retain some stems/leaves throughout winter.
