Stipa tenuissima Pony Tail Grass

Stipa tenuissima Pony Tail Grass

A first rate grass. A few years ago we said that if we only grew one grass this would be it, and we are still of the same opinion. A deciduous species sending up bright green narrow leaves in spring and forming dense tufts, in July these are accompanied by silky flowers starting silvery-green and aging to a rich buff. In the slightest of air movements the whole plant sparkles, not to mention the beautiful form when highlighted by winter frost. Thrives with good drainage and a sunny site. 45cm (18")
