Tufted Hairgrass


Tufted hairgrass is a perennial sedge grass--United States native ornamental grass that is a favorite among TN Nursery customers. It comes from the fertile, thick forests of the Ozark mountains and eastward to the Appalachians. It will flourish in full or partial sun in the moderately warm USDA plant hardiness zones.


The name tufted hairgrass denotes the appearance of this species. It grows in thick, three-foot-tall, attractive tufts or tussocks. Each one is about two feet wide and appears like a thick head of hair.


You might also hear gardeners refer to this species as tussock grass, blue-green hair grass, fescue-leaved hair grass, or just hair grass.


Where to Plant Tufted Hairgrass in Your Landscape


Tufted hairgrass loves the water; it is even tolerant of occasional floods or standing water. It requires a high-moisture environment for optimal health.


As a mountain dweller, this lovely species wants plenty of organic materials, including wood mulch, shredded leaves, or peat moss.


This ornamental grass is deer-resistant, rabbit-resistant, flood-tolerant, heat-tolerant, and cold-tolerant.


Plant tufted hair grassin some of these locations:


  •      Water garden
  •      Near a pond, stream, or creek
  •      As accent plant
  •      Rain garden
  •      In slow-draining meadows or fields
  •      Ground cover plant
  •      Natural area


The Natural Charm of Tufted Hairgrass is Hard to Beat

Tufted hairgrass is a gorgeous plant that grows in attractive mounds. They form a fountain shape as the leaves reach up and eventually fold over from their weight.


The leaves are slender and of a narrow width but incredibly sturdy. They are blue-green on the top and pale green on the opposite sides. Its flowers form in the summer--small nutty brown cylindrical seed heads on slender spikelets.


The flowers release many seeds that help the plant reproduce the following spring.

    I never regretted having this planted in my barren space in the farm.. That space is just a haven of butterflies and birds.
