Briza Media Plants

Although it's a native grass, this easily-grown definite is worthy of a place in any border when its large quaking seeds leads appear over the vegetation in summer time. When first open, the seeds leads are green but they gradually take on golden shades as summer time moves along and become almost animated when touched by a gentle summer time breeze.
