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.
