Deschampsia cespitosa ‘Goldtau’
at Digging Dog

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.

Deschampsia cespitosa ‘Goldtau’ full sun  partial shade  new plant

Defined by narrow arching deep green foliage, a winsome sturdy mound propels verdant stems, exploding into sheer sprays of distinctively hued, long lasting yellow-green flowers. The lithe inflorescences exhibit glowing bronze tones when mature and provide an enticing winter aspect plus lend exquisite accents to bouquets. Smaller and more compact than other Deschampsia cultivars, this versatile undemanding 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’.

Blooms July-October

Size: 12"–2' high x 12" wide; hardy to zone 4.

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.

In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden!
