Searching Genus for Deschampsia

A genus of 50 tufted perennial grasses with threadlike to linear foliage.

DESCHAMPSIA caespitosaLate Summer1256
Tufted Hairgrass60-90cm  Zone: 3
Native to the northern hemisphere. A clump-forming, cool season grass forming a low, dense tussock (to 45cm tall) of very thin arching, dark green foliage. Airy panicles of variably-colored flowers (tones of gold, silver, purple and green) form a cloud over the foliage that is particularly attractive when backlit. These turn yellowish-tan after bloom as the seed ripens and remain attractive through much of the winter. This is one of the few ornamental grasses that grows well in moderately shady locations, however it will not flower well if moved into too much shade. Wild collected in Finland this year.
Germination Instructions: Easy, warm germinator.
