Mexican Feather Grass

Contact your local store to check availability

Delicate and graceful leaves and airy flower heads sway gently with the slightest breeze. Reseeds to naturalize in meadows or on slopes for erosion control, though not a pest. Combine with Sedums and Asters or tuck into a rock garden. Herbaceous. Photo credit: Richard Shiell
