Semi-Evergreen, Blooming Ornamental Grass

This versatile, ornamental grass is perfect for any landscape. Whether you need a variety for mass plantings, garden beds, patio pots and borders or just some late-season interest, the Golden Dew Tufted Hair Grass is an excellent choice! 

Unlike other semi-evergreen, ornamental grasses, the Golden Dew Tufted Hair Grass blooms with delicate sprays of golden-yellow plumes in late summer and early fall. As these blooms mature, they turn to a gorgeous, shimmering bronze color, creating the most peaceful display as they drift in the wind. They're also an exquisite addition to cut or dried flower arrangements around your home.

Native to North America, the Golden Dew Tufted Hair Grass is both low-maintenance and pest resistant, thriving in moist soil and shade to partial sun and only requiring pruning once a year. Plant it up and watch it bring texture, color and interest to your landscape!

The Golden Dew Tufted Hair Grass makes a splendid accent, grouping, or mass planting addition to your landscape. And its low, mounding growth habit makes it ideal for erosion control, and foreground placement. It can also be used to camouflage the bare lower stems of other plants or placed next to tall, summer-blooming perennials for height and color contrast.

Note: If you purchase this grass in fall-winter, it may be cut back for the plant’s health. If your grass is cut back, don’t worry - it will grow even happier and healthier next spring!

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Plant in an area with full to partial sun (4-8 hours of sunlight per day). Select a location with well-drained soil and dig a hole that's large enough to accommodate your grass's root ball.

After you've planted, mulch the surrounding area and water to settle the roots.

2. Watering: Water weekly, or more often in extreme heat or drought. If you plant your grass in containers, you'll also want to water more frequently. Check the soil and water when soil is dry to the touch two inches down.

3. Pruning: Prune your grass all the way back in late winter or early spring to allow room and energy for new growth.
