Deschampsia cespitosa 'Northern Lights', commonly known as Tufted Hairgrass, is a cool-season perennial grass that is native to many regions of the world, including Europe, Asia, and North America. It is often used as an ornamental plant in gardens and landscapes for its attractive appearance.

This grass has a tufted habit, with foliage that grows in dense clumps. The leaves are narrow and can range from green to blue-gray, and they typically grow up to 2 feet in height. The plant can reach up to 3 feet tall and wide when mature.

In the summer, Tufted Hairgrass produces tall, thin stems that bear delicate panicles of flowers that are silvery-green in color. These flowers can persist well into the winter, providing interest in the garden even when many other plants have died back.

One notable feature of 'Northern Lights' is its variegated foliage. The leaves are striped with creamy yellow and green, adding interest to the plant's already attractive form. This cultivar is hardy to USDA zones 4-9, making it adaptable to a wide range of climates.
