Mexican Feather Grass is the most fine-textured grass we grow. With wispy, flowing, lime-green foliage, the slightest breeze will cause it to sway. This cool season native grass retains its color year round, although it may brown out somewhat in the heat of the summer. Light, wheat-colored seed heads emerge in May. Self-sowing can occur but it is not aggressive and can be easily controlled by plucking unwanted seedlings from the landscape. Mexican Feather Grass requires dry soil and full sun and it is very drought tolerant. Nassella tenuissima is especially spectacular planted in decorative urns. It is native to the Southwest US, Mexico and Argentina where it inhabits dry areas.
