Quaking Grass, Briza maxima, also known as Rattlesnake Grass is a very unusual showy grass and a great favorite with flower-arrangers. This unique grass has segmented, long clusters of seeds that may appear to resemble a rattlesnake tail.
In the garden these nod gently in the breeze and remain decorative for some time before shedding their seeds, and they make the perfect foil for a range of flowers both in the garden and the vase.
Best grown in groups for maximum impact, sow Briza maxima in situ in moist but well-drained soil in full sun to partial shade. Harvest the flower stems to use in dried flower arrangements throughout winter. Zone 6 -11.
Other Names: Totter grass, greater Quaking grass, Rattlesnake Grass, zittergras, big quaking grass, Pearl grass, Blowfly grass, Rattlesnake grass, large quaking grass, shelly grass, rattle grass, shell grass.
