Deschampsia cespitosa Bronze Veil

Hair Grass

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 8.130.100

(='Bronzeschleier') Hair Grass is a well-behaved, clump-forming species that is beautiful in the border, and especially when mass planted. Plants form a low mound of dark-green leaves, bearing upright stems with clouds of tiny, airy flowers in a bronzy-green shade, maturing to beige. Light and billowing in effect, a wonderful contrast to bold-leaved plants. Suitable also for mixed containers. Flower stems should be cut back in late winter. Clumps may be easily divided in early spring. Any seedlings that appear should be removed. Evergreen in mild winter regions.
