Grass - Great Quaking
(Briza maxima)

This decorative grass is excellent for cutting and dying for dry flower arrangements. It's very easy for the novice gardener or children. The sound and appearance of the flower heads blowing in a breeze is soothing. A 'casual' grass for the cutting garden, wildflower meadow, or informal flower border. Long lasting flower heads are nice in bouquets, and they don't shatter.
