Mexican feathergrass


Nassella tenuissima

Mexican feathergrass

Mexican feathergrass is brimming with grace. The slightest wind will send the delicate flower stalks and thin leaves of this perennial grass into motion. Native to North American drylands, Mexican feathergrass thrives in quick-draining, lean soil and tolerates drought with ease. It reseeds, though not in an invasive way, to naturalize in meadows or on slopes for erosion control. Pair it with flowering perennials or succulents.
