(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...every garden needs at least one wispy plant. 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
