A wheat-like ornamental grass whose dark green leaves turn to golden brown as they mature.
Tufted Hair Grass Goldtau is delicate in appearance – with thin green stems reaching upwards from the central core at its base. It’s fine flowery plumage also changes colour as it ages – from silvery green in summer to pale gold by the end of autumn. Delicate in appearance, but resilient against the cold and wet British weather, Tufted Hair Grass Goldtau is popular in Cottage or Farmhouse style gardens.
Ornamental Grasses are chosen for their decorative qualities and whether used indoors or outdoors, they can bring a striking diversity to your garden. From round shrubs to tall walls of quivering spikes, ornamental grasses bring new shapes and textures that will contrast against the twisted roots of trees and the blooms of traditional plants and flowers. They are also becoming increasingly popular due to their hardiness against the British weather and their ability to hold their colour through autumn and winter.
