Deschampsia cespitosa 'Northern Lights'

Deschampsia cespitosa 'Northern Lights'


This dramatic changling will offer a variety of colours as it matures turning from green with gold streaks to gold with pinkish tips!

'Northern Lights' is a clump-forming, variegated grass that makes a nice accent, especially in containers. Its flower stems rise from the foliage in early summer bearing tiny variably-coloured flowers of gold, silver, purple and green. These lovely, little flowers dance over the foliage, much like the Northern Lights in a cloudless evening sky! This grass is easily grown in well-drained soils in partial shade. It prefers moist, organically rich soils. Flowering stems may be removed in fall to tidy plants or simply leave them be to provide some interest in the winter garden.
