Mexican Feather Grass

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.
