The Content Of The Article:
Schmielen are well suited for natural landscaped gardens, the humid pond edge and woody edges. Suitable companions are forest perennials such as foxglove, columbine, brown cranesbill or ferns. The inflorescences are well suited for summer garden bouquets. The wire Schmiele can also be integrated well in rockeries or prairie gardens.
The inflorescences should be cut back in late winter. Older clumps can be cleaned in the spring, so that the new blades have room to grow.
The grass Schmiele can be propagated in early spring by division of the Wurzelballens. They are also self-sufficient.
Diseases and pests
Schmermen are robust and are hardly affected by pests. The hard, bristly leaves are spurned by snails.
