Golden Tufted Hair Grass

Deschampsia cespitosa Tardiflora

July – December.



<i>Deschampsia cespitosa</i> ‘Tardiflora’

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.

This Karl Foerster innovation boasts small dreamy looking inflorescences, whose wide airy consortium sparkles in gold, silver and purplish shades. Topping abundant flowing panicles, they appear later than the species, mature to an amber color and linger most of the winter. Arching close-knit narrow blades, edged by in-rolled margins, compose the low growing emerald green tussock that makes a tidy verdant companion for Eryngium bourgatii and Aster asperulus.

Size: 2' 0"–3' 0" high x 2' 0"–3' 0" wide; hardy to zone 4.
