Gardening is like cooking. To improve, you need to be willing to make mistakes and experiment. Also, common names are garbage. Zone 9b, West Sac, CA.

Nassella tenuissima syn. Stipa tenuissima

  • Season Icon Late SpringLate Spring 2019
  • Like Count 7

Got this #Nassella-tenuissima (formerly #Stipa-tenuissima) at work, where a colleague had ripped it out of a planted arrangement for being a #weed. #MexicanFeatherGrass is considered invasive in #California, which is why I'll probably destroy this one soon, before it produces seeds. (Update: Apparently, it already had seeds. Gah. Gave it a severe haircut and tossed everything in the trash.)
