Pheasant’s Tail Grass
The species of this widely distributed genus of cool season grasses are evergreen in milder climates. The jointed, bamboo-like flower stalks lend an Asian look to many of the showy varieties. The flowers are stunning in morning and end of the day light, and in the breezes of any hour.
Like a fountain, the green, bronze and golden narrow blades are upright and arching. Slightly dry soils will intensify the copper tones of this graceful, clumping evergreen Stipa. While grown mostly for its delightful form and color, the subtle inflorescences appear as a fine mist, tinged with small
purple and golden seed capsules known as awns.
Size: 2' 0" high x 2' 0"–3' 0" wide; hardy to zone 8.
Stipa arundinacea (G-0077)
