Crinkled hairgrass (Deschampsia flexuosa)

Deschampsia flexuosa is a cool season clumping perennial grass.  The tufted evergreen foliage is narrow and finely textured. In late spring airy panicles of silvery or purplish florets with hair like awns rise above the foliage. The inflorescence matures to a lovely apricot color and waves in the slightest breeze. This elegant grass thrives in xeric shaded habitats or in dappled shade gardens with average well drained soil.
