Stipa tenuissima commonly known as Ponytails, is a graceful grass forming an upright clump of silky, ultra-fine bright green foliage topped in summer with feathery pale green flowers, fading to beige. Long-lasting in beauty, swaying gently in the breeze. Height and spread around 60cm by 30cm. Most effective planted in drifts in informal planting schemes or singly in containers. Thrives in well-drained soils, preferring poor sandy soils. Cut back in spring before new growth begins.
