DESCHAMPSIA

Grown for their graceful clumps of arching foliage and airy clouds of flowers. Although they grow over much of North America, most garden selections are imports from Europe. Use these in mass plantings.

Deschampsia cespitosa vivipara

Grows to 1–2 ft. tall, 2 ft. wide. The plant produces plantlets instead of seeds; these droop to the ground and may take root.
