Luzula Pilosa 'Igel'

Luzula are evergreen perennials, sometimes stoloniferous. They have long, slender, flat leaves and clusters of tiny brown flowers in Spring or Summer.

Flowering

From Early Spring TO Early Summer

Clusters of small brown flowers appear atop arching stems in Spring to early Summer

 

Planting

From Mid Spring TO Mid Spring

Luzula thrives in moist, humus-rich soil, in shade or partial shade. It will tolerate sun, as long as the soil is consistently moist.

 

Propagating by division

From Early Autumn TO Mid Autumn

After approximately three years, once herbaceous perennial varieties have become established clumps they should be divided in order to retain vigour, or for propagation. The simplest method is to carefully dig around the clump and gently pull it apart into fist sized pieces and re-plant immediately. The middle of the original clump should be discarded as this will have lost vigour and become woody.
