Wavy Hair-grass Deschampsia flexuosa

With wavy stems, fine, hair-like leaves, and delicate, shaking flower heads, Wavy Hair-grass certainly lives up to its common name. A tuft-forming perennial grass, it can be found on heaths and moorlands, mainly with acidic soils.. It is the foodplant of the caterpillar of the Wall Brown Butterfly, which is classified as a Priority Species in the UK Biodiversity Action Plan.
