Notes

Dwarf Hairgrass is very highly thought of by admirers of aquascaping, where natural scenes are artistically reproduced in the aquarium by different plant species. Contrast in shape and colour is celebrated through the use of metaphor, one design is to have Dwarf Hairgrass placed so it looks like rushes at the edge of a pond.
