Native Land: West Texas, Mexico, Argentina

Sun/Shade: Prefers full sun

Flowers: No showy flowers but blooms attractive feathery panicles on its grass blades in late spring and has very attractive color changes from fresh green in spring to golden brown by fall.  

Landscape Use: Very useful in mass plantings or as individual specimens. Seeds itself and spreads being a “good weed” to have. Container Use: Not the best plant for containers; prefers the ground.

Size: 2 ½ feet tall and 21\2 feet wide.

Type: Evergreen changing foliage color through the seasons.

Deer Resistance: One of the most deer- resistant plants known. Drought Tolerance: Very drought tolerant but looks best with occasional watering.

Soil: Not particular about soil as long as it drains well and does not remain constantly wet. Does well in rocky soil or even better with soil enhancement.

Water: Smart Watering Principle=Water well when first planted then allow to dry slightly, without wilting, then water deeply again, etc. A soaking rainfall should last for about two weeks worth of watering. Do not keep constantly wet.

Fertilizer: Does even better with mild doses of fertilizer but grows just fine without it.

Maintenance Tips: Do not expect all originally planted clumps to survive. This problem is more than made up for as it seeds itself and spreads.  It is best to periodically comb through the grass with your hands pulling out the dead portions.  It also is good to cut the grass down to about 6” inches if it becomes less attractive.

Rating: Rates very high as an ornamental grass.  One of the best.
