• Stipa tenuissima 'Pony Tails'

    Mexican Feather Grass

    From £6.00

    Stipa Pony Tails, also known as ‘Mexican Feather grass’ , Stipa tenuissima is a deciduous grass that can grow to 60cm and an ideal ornamental grass for your garden. Pony Tails form a compact upright tuft of thread-like leaves, with narrow, arching, feathery flowering panicles in summer.
    Stipa can be evergreen or deciduous, mostly perennial grasses with arching, folded or rolled, linear leaves and narrow panicles of often long-awned spikelets in summer and autumn. A very attractive ornamental grass, Pony Tails are great when used as a feature in a perennial border, as their tendency to sway in the slightest breeze adds an element of movement.
