About Grass Seeds - Mexican Feather Grass 

Stipa tenuissima

This delicate, wispy ornamental grass is the perfect option for meadows and hard-to-plant areas. Get that "amber waves of grain" look as Mexican Feather Grass moves, sways and rolls like waves in the wind. It is drought tolerant and simply needs a haircut once a year to keep it manicured. Keep in mind that Mexican Feather Grass can be invasive, as seedlings will sprout in areas that you did not plant. Regular landscape maintenance should keep this in check.
