Stipa tenuissima, commonly known as Mexican Feather Grass or Nassella tenuissima, is an ornamental grass native to western North America. It is a member of the Poaceae family and is prized for its delicate, fine-textured foliage and feathery flower spikes.

Mexican Feather Grass is a low-growing plant that typically reaches a height of 1-2 feet and can spread up to 2-3 feet wide. It has slender, green leaves that are less than a quarter-inch wide and up to 18 inches long. In the summer, this plant produces delicate, airy flower spikes that can reach up to 2 feet tall.

This grass is drought-tolerant and thrives in full sun to partial shade. It prefers well-draining soil and can be grown in a variety of landscaping applications, such as borders, rock gardens, and containers. It is also a great option for erosion control, as its roots are deep and fibrous, holding soil in place.

Mexican Feather Grass is a low-maintenance plant that requires minimal attention. It can be watered sparingly, allowing the soil to dry out between waterings, and does not require regular fertilization. It is also a self-seeding plant and can naturalize in favorable growing conditions.

Overall, Stipa tenuissima is a unique and attractive plant that is perfect for adding texture and movement to any garden or landscape. Its delicate foliage, feathery flower spikes, and low-maintenance requirements make it a popular choice among gardeners of all skill levels. However, it is important to note that this grass can be invasive in some areas, so it is important to research its suitability for your region before planting.
