Deschampsia Cespitosa Ornamental Grass at Lovegrass Farm on P.E.I.
Deschampsia cespitosa 'Native' after a heavy rain on July 10, 2011
The Deschampsia Cespitosa Grasses continue to look Beautiful in all their stages. I took this photo today from atop a step ladder to give a better view (I'll have to do that more often). This is the Native Deschampsia, which has been in bloom now for over a month. We had a heavy rain yesterday and last night (moisture that we are grateful for) and it knocked down the Deschampsia but they will pop back up as they dry off. They grew taller than normal this year as did a lot of Grasses and Perennials because of the wet cool Spring and early Summer.
Deschampsia cespitosa 'Bronzeschleier' on July 9, 2010
Deschampsia cespitosa 'Bronzeschleier' (bronze veil) started blooming just over a week ago; almost a month in the difference! I'm keeping closer track this year with photos to see if there are other differences in the plants. It is Beautiful as well! Both plants will be available for sale in September!
