Tufted Hair Grass
An easily grown, durable cool season grass, Deschampsias hail from the temperate regions of North America, Europe and eastern Asia. Wispy seed heads stretch in airy fans above finely-cut deep green tufted clumps, lending a delicate hazy quality that is put to best effect by planting en masse against a dark or solid backdrop. They can enhance woodland peripheries, moist meadows and perennial borders plus fresh or dried arrangements.
Defined by narrow arching deep green foliage, a winsome sturdy mound propels emerald-hued stems, exploding into sheer sprays of distinctive long-lasting yellow-green flowers. The lithe inflorescences exhibit warm bronze tones when mature and provide an enticing winter presence. Smaller and more compact than other cespitosa species, this undemanding, all-purpose grass develops a dense semievergreen habit that can be grouped along a pathway or sited among Echinops ‘Blue Glow’ and Phygelius ‘Peach Trombone’.
