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

Loved by garden designers and so popular on the West Coast, this is THE GRASS to know and grow in USDA Zones 8-10. Fast growing to form a dense 3’x3’ always-glowing focal point, you’ll admire its gorgeous, slender and arching olive, amber and gold foliage. Carefree and 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 and if you cut it back to about 8-12” in Winter it’ll stay picture perfect every year.
