Description How to Grow More Info Delivery Reviews Video
Fine, billowing, thread-like foliage forms neat, arching clumps that tremble with the slightest breeze. The fluffy, buff-coloured flowerheads give a silvery shimmer to this tactile, deciduous grass. There are few plants that add movement and texture to the garden better than Stipa tennuissima. This low maintenance, hardy perennial is resilient and drought tolerant once established, seedling about freely to create fabulous wispy drifts. A fine choice for sunny borders, patio containers, gravel gardens or softening the edges of pathways. Height: 60cm (24"). Spread: 30cm (12").

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

Flowering Months
Cut back the faded foliage of Stipa in early spring to make way for new growth. Alternatively, whilst wearing gardening gloves, simply comb your fingers gently through the clumps of grass in spring, and the dead leaves will pull away from the base of the plant. Lift and divide overcrowded clumps to maintain their vigour. Stipa self seeds freely. If seedlings are not required then remove them as they appear.
Grow Stipa on any fertile, well drained soil in full sun. Avoid sites that sit wet in winter as Mexican Feather grass can be prone to rotting in such conditions.
