Grass Deschampsia cespitosa 'Goldtau'
‘Goldtau’ is a clump-forming cool season ornamental grass that is smaller and more compact than other forms of Deschampsia cespitosa. Flower stems rise in summer bearing airy panicles of tiny golden yellow flowers that appear to float over the foliage. Attractive seed heads attract birds and provide winter interest.
