Mexican Feathergrass (Nassella tenuissima) Plant Profile!

We are starting to create individual Texas native plants profiles and today we will put the spotlight on Mexican Feathergrass (Nassella tenuissima).


From the entry:

“Mexican Feather Grass is a graceful short growing ornamental grass. Don’t let this gentle Texas native to confuse you: It is hard as nails, fuss free and requires very modest amounts of watering. We love designing Mexican Feathergrass in our xeriscape flowerbeds  with other plants that will complement or contrast it’s elegant and soft form. Especially beautiful when planted a mass with some large specimen agaves. A wonderful choice for Austin xeriscape landscapers.”


What do you think about Mexican Feathergrass? Do you grow it yourself? Pictures or insights to share?
