Tufted hairgrass gets its name from the fine, hairlike flowers that rise about the plant. They emerge green and turn shades of gold, forming clouds that look like a beautiful, unruly head of golden hair.
A native to damp woods, bogs, and streamsides, tufted hairgrass prefers a cool spot in partial shade.
