A newer variety of tufted hair grass, Deschampsia cespitosa 'Tardiflora' has long, arching green leaves with very fine feathery flowers that shimmer with hints of gold, silver and purple as they catch the light. The finely-cut yet clumping growing habit means that Deschampsia 'Tardiflora' can look wonderful planted either amongst other perennial plants, planted en masse as a distinctive border feature or even used for ground cover.
A mound-forming, semi-evergreen grass thats particularly versatile, it thrives in both sun and light shade and the flower heads can be enjoyed from July to September. It is considered a very low maintenance plant and will grow to around 1m height and spread at maturity.
Plant in fertile, well-drained but moist soil. Cut back old foliage to the ground in late winter or early spring before the new shoots emerge.
We recommend trimming off the flower heads of your Deschampsia cespitosa 'Tardiflora' grass in late winter or early spring before any new growth begins to appear, and trim right back if the plant begins to look particularly tatty or unruly.
