Product: Nassella tenuissima

Mexican Feather Grass

(aka: Stipa tenuissima) We truly love this Southwest US native grass. The delicate, narrow foliage of Nassella tenuissima forms a delightfully wispy, deer-resistant clump…every garden needs at least one wispy plant. The 2′ tall, wispy tan plumes blend nicely with the foliage in late spring…a very cute ornamental grass! The shallow-rooted Nassella tenuissima will often seed near the mother clump, so if you get a few too many babies, simply get out the Progestin…I mean RoundupĀ®. Nassella tenuissima was named by the Royal Horticultural Society as one of the top 200 plants of the last 200 years!
