Stipa tenuissima Pony Tails


Description

This ornamental grass is native to the prairie so this versatile grass is ideal for planting in a sunny gravel garden as well as in the traditional perennial border. Stipa tenuissima Pony Tails (also known as Nassela tenuissima. Mexican feather grass) has very fine wispy, pale to yellowy-green leaves topped with feathery plumes of silver grey flowers, the whole plant maturing to a blond colour which persists well into the winter months. Stipa tenuissima has a graceful arching shape making it a wonderful specimen for animating and introducing movement into the garden. Stipa tenuissima can also be grown in light shade. Pony Tails enjoys full sun and is drought tolerant.
