“Giant Feather Grass”
Stipa gigantea“Giant Feather Grass”

Tall, stately and distinguished, “Giant Feather Grass” is the perfect specimen grass (you only need one for a great look). Growing to 6’ tall, it’s extra valuable because it blooms early in June and July rather than in Fall like so many others. As the flowers unfurl, they shimmer in the light and rustle in the slightest breeze and are beautiful backlit by the setting sun. The arching foliage reaches only 18” tall and forms a tidy clump. The flowering stems are strong and erect and are very long lasting in bouquets. An excellent choice for adding height and structure to the garden! Water generously until established after which it can tolerate drought. Well-drained soil - no clay - is best.
