You can count on these beautiful, low-maintenance and easy-growing ornamental grasses to add color to your yard all year long.

Mexican feather grass (Stipa tenuissima) introduces an elegant presence to the garden with its narrow, refined upright foliage that forms an attractive fountain. Showy seed plumes with a feathery texture appear in summer. One clump isn’t enough of this pretty grass. It’s more spectacular when planted in multiples. Give plants full sun in fertile, well-drained soil. Plants are deer and drought resistant and hardy in Zones 7 to 11. This grass does self-sow readily and in some regions has been reported as invasive. Check with your local extension office or search online to determine if this grass is a problem in your area. To prevent self-sowing, snip seed plumes before seeds mature.
