Lamarckia Aurea

Lamarckia Aurea (Lamarckia aurea Golden Shower) - Easy to grow from Lamarckia aurea seeds, this annual ornamental grass is commonly called Goldentop. Golden Top Grass is originally from the Mediterranean region, and today in the United States it can be found growing from Texas to California. Lamarckia is a distinctive ornamental grass with short dense golden panicles, flushed purple when mature. The panicles can be used for cutting and preserving.

Growing ornamental grass from seed can be a fun and rewarding experience. Goldentop Grass seed can be started indoors in late winter or directly sown outdoors in the spring. Prepare a seedbed by loosening the soil and raking it to a fine tilth, and press the ornamental grass seeds into the soil and lightly cover. Lamarckia ornamental grass easily re-seeds. Deadheading is recommended if spreading is not desired.
