Deschampsia flexuosa has wispy, bronze-to-purple colored panicles that last and last. Vibrant green, thin leaves grow to about two feet; airy panicles tower above on tall thins stems. Crinkled Hair Grass is undemanding about soil and water, and is content in shade to part sun. Deschampsia flexuosa is a good plant for naturalizing, and it looks dramatic when planted in masses, especially when the wind blows the open panicles. It is a fine choice for restoration or for landscape projects that require a native grass that is also ornamental. It is a cool season native grass that does particularly well in Northern climates, but also survives our North Carolina summers when planted in shade. In the botanical literature, sometimes referred to as Avenella flexuosa, but for now we’re keeping it in Deschampsia. Must ship by May 31.
