'Lemperg' is a clump-forming, deciduous, perennial grass, slightly more compact than the species, with narrow arching leaves and pale, silvery-green flower panicles in summer. When the flowers and leaves die they turn buff-coloured and remain on the plant all winter

Honey-scented, yellow-green flowers are produced from late spring to late summer, turning pale brown as they age, followed by yellow-green, berry-like fruit
Ashwood Garden hybrids are a seed-raised group of semi-evergreen herbaceous perennials, up to 30cm high, with dark green leaves, and flowers from late winter to spring in a wide range of forms, including single and double, plain, spotted, blotched and flushed forms, and in a wide range of colours, including white, green, yellow, peach, pink, purple, slate-grey, and black
