Description

Eriophorum russeolum (Bronze cotton grass) is a much shorter species of cotton grass; flowers are fewer but bronze coloured and the leaves are very fine and round in cross-section. Slow to grow and suitable for very small ponds. Best planted with all the foliage above water level.

Repotting or planting

9cm marginal plants require potting into a larger mesh basket. Place in a pond no deeper than 1/3 maximum recommended planting depth to allow the plants to establish. 1ltr marginal plants do not require repotting, place in the pond no deeper than 1/2 maximum recommended planting depth to allow the plants to establish, plants over 60cm height growth will benefit from repotting into a larger mesh basket or should be planted in gravel to prevent them from falling over. 3ltr and 5ltr plants do not require repotting, as they are larger more established plants they can be placed up to the maximum recommended depth. There is no need to remove the mesh basket.

Care instructions

Leave old growth standing through winter. Cut down in spring when new shoots have grown to about 15cm high.
