Andrew Keys added this to 5 Hot Cool-Season Grasses
The grass I'm telling people about most these days is tufted hair grass (Deschampsia cespitosa, zones 4 to 9). Think of it as a cross between 'Karl Foerster' and blue fescue — a tidy, globe-shaped green clump that explodes in summer with flowers of the cleanest, freshest apple green. Those fade to wheat and hover above clumps like raindrops suspended on rods. (See an example in the background in the next photo.) Hair grass is native to northern and western North America. It grows well in sun or partial shade, and damp or dry soil; it likes a bit of shade in the heat of the day. Cultivar 'Northern Lights' has variegated foliage that turns pink when the weather cools.Photo by Rasbak via Wikimedia Commons
