Tufted hair grass, is a clump-forming, cool season grass which typically forms a low, dense clump up to 16" tall. The dark green blades are very thin, arching, and flat. Tons of flower (silver, gold, green and purple) on top of 3ft stems that appear in summer are airy and wide which form a cloud over the foliage that is attractive when backlit. Flower panicles will turn a yellowish-tan after they bloom out and the seeds ripen and remain interesting through winter. One of the few ornamental grasses that grows well in shade.
