cespitosa comples in central and northern Europe: a morphological analysis.
cespitosa, Eleocharis elliptica, Lobelia kalmii, Oligoneuron ohioense, Parnassia glauca, Ranunculus hispidus var.
lutulenta (Van Duzee) (Hemiptera: Fulgoromorpha: Delphacidae): association with common hairgrass, Deschampsia
flexuosa (Poaceae), and notes on habitats, seasonality, and taxonomy.
For foliage fanatics the Bergenia range, aptly nicknamed elephant's ears offer great displays of large leathery leaves, and I could not miss out the extensive range of ornamental grasses such as calamagrostis, miscanthus, pennisetum and the evergreen deschampsia
, which have forms and colours that complement each other beautifully against a darkened grey sky.
danthonioides (Poaceae-Pooideae) a New Record for Peruvian Flora
is a fine textured, delicate grass which grows in perfect circular mounds and produces tassle flowers that turn from silver to purple to gold.
The meadows consisted of forbs (for example, Triteleia ixioides, Lewisia nevadensis, Rumex salicifolius, Achillea lanulos, Veratrum californicum, Mimulus primuloides), grasses (Achnatherum lettermanii, Poa pratensis, Deschampsia
cespitosa, Holcus lanata), sedges (Carex rostrata, C.
flexuosa, Muhlenbergia capillaris var.
Some prefer a moist soil, including the tufted hair grass, Deschampsia
caespitose, and another of my favourites, the Japanese blood grass Red Baron (Imperata cylindrical).
It actually damages such key native grasses as Deschampsia
cespitosa, and it exterminates every native creature that cannot escape, leaving those that can with charred habitat.

Yellow is represented, among others by Deschampsia
cespitosa 'Gold Dust', silver blue by Festuca glauca 'Elijah Blue', reds are to be found in Imperata cylindrica 'Red Baron' and varying degrees of variegation, both vertical and horizontal in may other species and cultivars.
At King George Island, bacterial counts in a Podzol under Deschampsia
antarctica were found at similar levels (Bolter 1995; Bolter et al.
Root trenching led to large increases in the growth of the extremely shade-tolerant herb Oxalis acetosella under Fagus sylvatica in Scotland, and of Oxalis acetosella and Deschampsia
flexuosa under the less deeply shading Pinus sylvestris in the same area (Watt and Fraser 1933).
There are only two species of flowering plant to the south of 60[degrees]S, the endemic grass Deschampsia
antarctica and Colobanthus quitensis (Caryophyllaceae), which also grows in the Andes.
