Stipa arundinacea
(Syn. Anemanthele lessoniana)
“New Zealand Wind Grass”

Stipa arundinacea (Syn. Anemanthele lessoniana) “New Zealand Wind Grass”

Loved by garden designers & so popular on the West Coast, this is THE GRASS to know & grow in USDA Zones 8-10. Fast growing to form a dense 3’x3’ always-glowing focal point, you’ll admire its gorgeous, slender & arching olive, amber & gold foliage. Carefree & long lived, its great just about anywhere you plant it - foreground, background, anywhere you desire a low maintenance textural subject. A wonderful sight massed on a hillside, it can be grown in large containers too. Not fussy about soil & if you cut it back to about 8-12” in Winter it’ll stay picture perfect every year.
