Crinkled Hair Grass
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.
Meandering across dry open wooded areas, slopes and grasslands in North America, Europe and Asia, this tight-set semievergreen grass forms a diminutive trim tussock of arching wire-thin deep green blades beneath wide frothy inflorescences. The minute purple and bronze flowers populate swaying diaphanous panicles, which mature to gold after the seed ripens and are cherished by floral arrangers as well as cardinals, finches and snow buntings. Obliging drought and shade, Crinkled Hair Grass is an attractive formidable candidate for well-drained woodland gardens, borders or the rockery.
