(aka: Stipa tenuissima) We truly love this Southwest US native grass. The delicate, narrow foliage of Nassella tenuissima forms a delightfully wispy, deer-resistant clump that makes us think of President Trump's coiffure...we shall overcomb. The 2' tall, wispy tan plumes blend nicely with the foliage in late spring...a very cute ornamental grass! The shallow-rooted Nassella tenuissima will often seed near the mother clump, so if you get a few too many babies, simply get out the Progestin...we mean Roundup
