Common Name: Wavy Hairgrass
Will grow in dry shade Provides nest sites, protective cover and food for birds Offers protective cover for small mammals Good winter interest; very winter hardy Use flowers in fresh or dried arrangements

This showy, fine-textured, evergreen grass is excellent in shady gardens or woodland settings. A cool season grower, wavy hairgrass forms a tight clump of narrow, wiry foliage. In late spring, stems shoot up above the foliage and arch gracefully with frothy-looking flowers. Clumping grasses like this provide nest sites and winter cover for quail and sparrows. They also provide fall and winter seeds for a number of birds including cardinals, towhees, juncos, sparrows, finches, goldfinches, redpolls and snow buntings.
