Deschampsia cespitosa ‘Schottland’
at Digging Dog

Scottish Tufted Hair Grass

Deschampsia cespitosa Schottland

Deschampsia

Tufted Hair Grass

Wispy seed heads stretch in airy fans above finely cut, deep green tufted foliage. By planting Deschampsia in drifts, with a dark or solid background, its delicate, hazy quality is put to best effect. Try this one waterside, in a woodland setting, or as an accent in the perennial bed. The 50 species in this genus are, or were, found primarily in temperate regions of the Northern Hemisphere.

The silky, new light green flower heads of 'Schottland' invite a touch each time we pass by. One of the largest Deschampsias, this Scottish born selection spawns inflorescences that float nearly 3 ft. above a neat rounded clump of deep green foliage. Utilize as a specimen in a mixed border or in a more untamed arena.

Blooms July–December.

Size: 3'–3-1/2' high x 2-1/2' wide; hardy to zone 4.
