Each year the popular plant brand “Proven Winners” chooses an annual of the year to spotlight. For 2022, they have picked Graceful Grasses Prince Tut. This grass is has a fun and interesting shape, with a skinny blade and large poms on the top. It is a type of Egyptian Papyrus. The grass is somewhat compact (about 18″-30″) and quite sturdy. It is shorter and easier to manage than it’s brother King Tut – (about half the size of King Tut Grass). Some other interesting facts: it is heat tolerant, can be used as a water plant, and does not need any dead heading. Prince Tut grass is an excellent choice for a “thriller” in the center of your containers, and is a go-to when we make custom containers here at Moraine Gardens!
To see some other great recipes for containers, Proven Winners puts out an “idea book” to look through. The booklet has a bunch of great ideas and inspiration for your own gardens, along with the hottest new plant trends. To view the lookbook, click here: Proven Winner Lookbook.
