Product information "Deschampsia cespitosa"

Tufted hair grass is a very striking and decorative grass, which is not only found in Europe, North Africa, but also in Asia and North America. It is also very attractive in our gardens. Its forms clumps and has medium strong growth. The stalks are up to 60 cm long and are slightly arched. Starting in June, yellowish brown, upright, very decorative spikes appear above the evergreen, slightly rough stalks. Deschampsia cespitosa prefers sunny to semi-shady locations with moist to wet soils that are only slightly permeable. This is a rather unpretentious grass that is well adaptable. Pruning the flower spikes should be done before the winter because the plant will otherwise reseed itself too strong.
