Description

Decschampsia cespitosa is a perfect tufted, ornamental grass for part shaded areas. It has narrow, dark leaves but the real showstopper is the flowers that appear in summer, they are purple, feathery panicles that appear on long, arching stems. 

This guy doesn't need much care and is frost tolerant. His fine, narrow leaves move with the wind and add colour and texture to the garden.
