Tufted Hair Grass forms a tight clump of super thin, arching, dark green blades of grass that provide great texture in the landscape. Delicate plumes of flowers float over the dense tussocks with airy panicles that are tiny but lovely and range in color from gold, to silver, to green and even to purple. Birds love the seeds from these panicles in the fall and the yellowish tan seed heads offer winter interest that is subtle but welcome. This selection loves the semi-shaded garden and is perfect to interplant with Ferns or Hostas to add interesting texture and different form. It is also one of the best grasses to grow along stream beds or to mix in between rocks in a rock garden. Tufted Hair Grass is a true mutli use grass that is as easy to grow and as pest free as any Grass you can put in your garden!
