DESCHAMPSIA cespitosa. The type species, strong growing, particularly so in sticky clay. The inflorescence creates the effect of a golden cloud. 1m.
D. c. ‘Goldtau’. Reckoned to be the most persistent form and noted for its misty effect, lasting long into winter. 60cm.
Deschampsia flexuosa ‘Tatra Gold’. Forms low, tufted mounds of narrow foliage, a lively gold-green through winter and spring. 25cm.

*ERAGROSTIS curvula. S&SH 10. Far superior to the form we have been offering, by mid-summer the flowering stems knit together into a billowing misty mass which persists long into the winter months. 90cm.
*E. c. ‘Totnes Burgundy’. A selected form whose foliage develops a burgundy red caste. 75cm.

FESTUCA glauca ‘Blaufuchs’. For those of you who enjoy the neatness of a fescue here’s one of the best, forming an inert, grey blob for the front of the border. 20cm
