Grass Deschampsia cespitosa
This native grass has large silvery plumes of cloud-like flowers that are good for cutting. Mixes well with woodland plants. Evergreen and shade tolerant. In early spring, cut last years’ growth to the ground. Tawny bloom appears between July and August.
Though late to emerge in spring, grasses create a striking vertical accent in the summer garden; their flowers add grace to the fall garden, and in winter, they add more interest than almost any other plant. There are many to choose from in our climate.
