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.

Current Staff’s Favorite Plant

staff favorite plant

Our favorite plant this week - Not only do we love Liatris 'Kobold', but it's coveted by florists, butterflies & bees for itsl showy, vibrant hued flowers. ‘Kobold’ means “goblin”—and big-headed it is. This compact cultivar has a smaller stature than others of its species, and its erect stems rise solidly from the earth. Grassy foliage plays host to an outstanding bristle of rosy lilac blooms. A vibrant garden guest, contrast ‘Kobold’ against Phlomis fruticosa’s yellow blooms and harmonize with the pinkish panicles of Calamagrostis brachytricha.

Customer Comment:

“As a customer of many years' standing, long before online gardening was even possible, I can testify that the plants from Digging Dog have been consistently healthy and hardy through the years. They are also the biggest plants I've ever received by mail. Enormous root systems!”
