Plant Features

Ponytails Nassella Plant (Mexican Feather Grass) is deserving of its name, especially when the tails are waving in a mild breeze, just as a pony's tail flutters out behind it as it runs. Highly ornamental and ever graceful, the dense clumps of bright green leaves are topped by soft, wispy plumes all summer long. The plumes change from greenish-white to a wheaty-buff color as the season progresses. Nassella ornamental grasses are grown for their graceful display of long showy awns that sway gentle with the breeze. They provide stunning contrasts to rocks or bold-textured companion plantings.
