Deschampsia cespitosa ‘Northern Lights’

This intriguing new variegated selection from Harlan Hamernik of Bluebird Nursery in Clarkston, Nebraska breaks all the rules for Deschampsias. The narrow leaf blades are banded longitudinally with green and gold, then blush showy pink toward the tips in early spring. A clumping form to 12” or less with an equal spread, this cultivar has not been known to flower. Use with other ornamental grasses in a place where it receives backlighting from late afternoon sun. Provide full sun in coastal gardens and some shade inland with moderate to regular water. Plants may develop rust along the coast during cool, foggy summers, but should recover when sunny weather returns. Hardy to 5F. Garden origin.
