Luzula nivea

Luzula nivea - Snowy Woodrush

An early-flowering woodland plant, Luzula nivea is a medium-sized, slowly spreading, evergreen woodrush, forming narrow tufts of upright, dark green leaves; these are edged with white hairs, giving a silvery appearance. Small heads of pretty, off-white flowers to 2’ (60cm) are produced in early summer. Snowy Woodrush is very useful as an effective ground-cover under trees and shrubs, where it tolerates deeper, drier shade than most grasses; it will tolerate a sunny spot if the soil is reliably moist.
