Deschampsia Cespitosa, also known as ‘Tufted Hair Grass’ may be a deciduous or an evergreen ornamental grass. A neat clump forming dense grass of dark green foliage, above which in early Summer sprays of silvery-purple spikelets emerge on arching stems. Suitable in sunny or partially shaded areas, drought tolerant once established. Ideal for architectural planting schemes and also a much sought after plant by florists as the flower heads may be cut and added to any dried arrangements.
Looking after your Deschampsia Cespitosa
Generally pest and disease free, will tolerate a wide range of soil conditions, including drought, making this an ideal plant for numerous locations including coastal, cottage, city and courtyard gardens. In late Winter/early Spring cut back old stems to ground level to allow fresh new growth to come through, a general purpose slow release fertiliser may be added at this time.
