Dark green tussocks of semi-evergreen arching blades couple with billowing clouds of golden seed heads that emerge in July and glisten in the sunlight to warrant the common name Gold Dew. This cool season ornamental grass tolerates part shade and moist soils.
D. Goldtau is more compact than other forms of Deschampsia cespitosa. Leave seed heads standing in winter to attract songbirds. They love the seed and dried seed heads in spring provide ample nesting material. Stunning in a mass planting or use the seed heads as lovely accent to cut flower arrangements.
Deschampsia cespitosa is a clump-forming, cool season grass that grows well in part shade and prefers moist soils. Cool season grasses tend to have most growth in spring before temperatures begin exceeding 75 degrees and again in the fall when temperatures cool down. Maintains nice color throughout the summer. Ornamental Grasses and Sedges are restricted from Idaho and Oregon.
Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho
at this time.
Leave foliage in place until spring. When snow is gone, cut back before new shoots appear. Leave about 1/3 of the plant in place. May be transplanted in spring or fall, but early spring is the best time to divide.
