Description

This plant is generally referred to as the quaking grasses because the flowers and seedheads shake on their stalks in the slightest breeze.  The loose heads of quaking-grass are a distinctive feature of meadows and grasslands, particularly those on chalky soils. Its heart-shaped flower heads dance on delicate stems from June to September, giving the plant many different common names, including ‘Totter Grass’, ‘Dithery Dock’, ‘Wigwams’ and ‘Toddling Grass’.
