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.

A Jelitto Seeds introduction, this petite Deschampsia sprouts a tight and tidy evergreen clump of slim silver-green blades that are extremely cold hardy. Wide frosty-white panicles lend glimmering ethereal accents above grass-like foliage, and later transmute warm chocolate hues upon maturity. Most striking when planted in sweeps, pest-free ‘Little Pixie’ tolerates shade, nourishes birds, and is ideal for small-scale spaces, wooded areas, wildlife gardens or along ponds and streams.
Size: 16" – 2' 0" high x 12" – 18" wide.
Hardy to zone 2.
