Product description

Stipa tenuissima 'Ponytails', also known as Mexican Feather Grass 'Ponytails', is a graceful ornamental grass that enriches gardens with its delicate texture and soft appearance. This grass species belongs to the Poaceae family and is beloved for its feathery inflorescence and elegant growth habit.

Positive points:
  • Delicate, feathery inflorescence gives an airy and elegant appearance to the garden.
  • Evergreen, maintaining structure and texture even in the cold season.

Points to consider:
  • It can be invasive and spread; some control is needed to prevent unwanted expansion.
  • Requires well-draining soil and can be sensitive to root rot in moist conditions.

Mexican Feather Grass 'Ponytails' has a lovely upright growth and forms dense tufts with a height of about 50 cm. It thrives best in full sun and prefers well-draining, dry, to moderately moist soil. Care involves regular watering, especially during dry periods, and pruning old, dry stems in spring.

Combining Stipa tenuissima Ponytails
Stipa tenuissima 'Ponytails' combines beautifully with other summer bloomers such as Lavandula angustifolia (lavender) and Echinacea purpurea (purple coneflower). The feathery grass subtly contrasts with the upright flowers of lavender and the cone-shaped ones of the coneflower. This combination creates a soft and natural look in the garden, adding movement to the border with the swaying plumes of the ornamental grass.
