A University of California Berkeley Botanic Garden selection from coastal Jughandle Creek, Mendocino County. This hairgrass has very short, stout blades and flower stalks and is under 6 inches overall. It would make a handsome, naturally low meadow. Well adapted for west of the Laguna (in Sonoma County), needing a little shade and summer moisture inland. Deer resistant.
