Hair Grass (Agrostis scabra)
This is a beautiful cool-season grass with upright form and fine textured, airy, purple seed heads, that turn gold in late summer. It is very versatile and willing to grow in a variety of conditions. Its size will vary according to the site conditions, growing larger in shady or moist locations. Because it re-seeds easily, it is one that works well as a lawn alternative. Commonly referred to as Ticklegrass, its super fine leaves tickle your legs when you walk by.
