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.
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.
