One of the most graceful and delicate of all grasses with delicate, feathery, fog-like plumes which move with the slightest breath of air upon them. A perfect plant for mass plantings in stately homes and parks, and in planting schemes in up-market towns, but equally good as a single specimen.
Sow at any time, in a well-lit position, into a good, soil-based compost. Cover seeds thinly and keep moist at around 15 degrees C or 60 degrees F. Some New Zealand species can be very slow indeed and may need cooler temperatures before they will come up. Grass seedlings should be potted on and grown on singly, or in clumps for more rapid establishment of a large specimen.
Common name:Angel's Hair, Pony Tails, Mexican Feathergrass
