Fine as Frog's Hair- Deschampsia cespitosa

Fine as Frog's Hair- Deschampsia cespitosa

Posted by Emerald Coast Growers on Aug 30th 2023

An essential offering for landscapers, Deschampsia is a durable, easy-culture, native grass. One of the earliest blooming grasses, its tidy, clump-forming foliage is topped with a profusion of airy panicles through summer. Its common name, Hair grass, can be attributed to the fine texture of these luminous blooms and its slender, hair-thin blades.

Very shade tolerant, Deschampsia is easy to grow in moist, low-light spaces. Often planted in masses, or as a shady woodland accent to other moisture-loving perennials. Landscapers and growers love its versatility and long-lived nature.
