Deschampsia flexuosa

Crinkled Hair Grass

This is a cool season grass that tolerates light shade. Its very thin, arching, wiry dark green blades form dense tussocks. The flower stems that arise in summer bear airy panicles of purple to bronze flowers that turn gold as the seed ripens.

Prefers partial to full shade and moist, well-drained to dry soil. Semi-evergreen to evergreen. Cut old foliage to ground in late winter. Very nice with other shade perennials. Native.
