Ponytail Grass, also known as 'Mexican Feather Grass", is a very attractive Texas native that forms fine textured clumps about 18 inches wide and an equal spread. It is very drought tolerant and must have well-drained soil.

We use Ponytail grass as accents in the garden and it is especially atrractive when planted in groups. Perfect for dry slopes. Also a good container plant. Whispy, fall seed heads start out buff color then changing to golden-bronze.
