Deschampsia flexuosa or Wavy Hair Grass / Seeds

An evergreen grass with bright green leaves and pink tinged flowers in summer, from June to July.  Plants form tussocks of grass and grow to a height of 30-50cm when in flower.  These are good ground cover plants for difficult sites and are adaptable to dry shade and otherwise difficult sites. 


Wavy Hair Grass grows best in sun to dry shade and neutral to acidic soils.  


Pack of approx 100 small seeds.  Sow the seeds in spring and autumn.  Germination is erratic, so sow more than you need.  Sowing instructions and a colour photo are printed on the packet.

Hardiness Hardy evergreen perennial grass (RHS Hardiness H6)
Flowers June to July
Height 30 - 50cm
Spread 30cm
Conditions  Sun to shade and neutral to acidic soils
Sow

Sow the seeds indoors in spring and autumn.  Sow the seeds thinly onto the surface of a tray of compost.  Press the seeds gently in the compost, keep moist at 15-20C and germination takes 2-3 weeks, sometimes longer.  Germination can be erratic, so sow more than you need.  Move the seedlings into small pots when they are big enough to handle and then outside after hardening off.  

Grow

Plants grow slowly and steadily.  These are evergreen plants which can be tidied up and cut back in early spring.  Mature plants can be divided in early summer.
