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.
Defined by narrow arching deep green foliage, a winsome sturdy mound propels emerald-hued stems, exploding into sheer sprays of distinctively hued, long-lasting yellow-green flowers. The lithe inflorescences exhibit warm bronze tones when mature and provide an enticing winter presence plus lend exquisite accents to bouquets. Smaller and more compact than other cespitosa species, this undemanding, all-purpose cool season grass develops a dense semievergreen habit that can be grouped along a pathway or sited among Echinops ‘Blue Glow’ and Phygelius ‘Peach Trombone’.
