Research at Kew Gardens in England established that the different foliar traits of Molinia caerulea ssp.

caerulea and M. caerulea ssp. arundinacea are cultural rather than genetic, which invalidates their distinction as subspecies.

In the wild, the two subspecies grow together; however, the broad leaves and increased vigor of plants distinguished as M. caerulea ssp. arundinacea.

Because of its deciduous nature, Molinia produces large amounts of litter each year, which may affect the intensity and frequency of accidental fires in heathlands.

Molinia caerulea, known by the common name purple moor-grass, is a species of grass that is native to Europe, west Asia, and north Africa.

It grows in locations from the lowlands up to 2, m (7, ft) in the Alps. Like most grasses, it grows best in acid soils, ideally pH values of between and 5, however, it can continue to live under more extreme conditions, sometimes to as low as 2.

Noteworthy Characteristics. Molina caerulea, commonly known as purple moor grass, is a dense, upright, warm season perennial grass featuring flat narrow leaf blades (to 18” long by 1/4” wide) which grow in a dense clump from ’ to arching slender flower stalks topped by narrow flower panicles rise above the foliage clump to 3’ tall in mid-summer.

A variety of other species is associated with them, including purple moor-grass Molinia caerulea (L.) Moench, wavy-hair grass Deschampsia flexuosa (L.) Trin and mat grass Nardus stricta L.

Over the last 50 years, there has been a reduction in the amount of heather moorland across the UK (Thompson et al.,Tudor and Mackay, ) and a.

Molinia encroachment has been viewed as a major threat to moorland conservation in the UK and elsewhere in Europe. In England and Wales agri‐environment schemes are in place that aim to reduce Molinia caerulea and encourage the development of dwarf shrub vegetation.

We tested a range of management treatments to achieve these objectives in two regions (the North Peaks and Yorkshire. Molinia caerulea ‘Heidebraut’ at Digging Dog Mail Order Nursery.

Trial parameters. Sincethe Chicago Botanic Garden has evaluated 16 selections of molinia. Duration: Minimum of 6 years Participants: A variety of Molinia caerulea ssp. caerulea and M. caerulea ssp. arundinacea and their cultivars were trialed.

Zone: 5b Conditions: Full sun; well-drained, alkaline, clay-loam soil Care: Minimal, allowing the plants to thrive or fail under natural conditions.COVID 19; JUST TO LET YOU KNOW We continue to be very busy with mail order though we are now achieving turnaround times that are closer to our usual time of up to 14 working days.We tend to suggest for Molinia caerulea 3 to 5 per square metre and for the taller Molinia arundinacea types 1 to 3 per square metre.

The shorter moor grass, Molinia caerulea, is itself very beautiful and has given rise to several cultivars of which Molinia Poul Petersen, Molinia Edith Dudszus and Molinia Dauerstrahl are especially good.
