Stipa grass

HerbAugust 25, 2005

I bought one of these a couple of years ago: it has attractive leaves & grows about 2 feet high & then in summer it goes this color & produces seeds.

And the seeds produce new ones in all sorts of unexpected places - so I may just dig it out.

I kind of like the visual effect. Woudn't want them taking over though. Maybe in a pot on the deck. Cool!

i've tried this one, too, herb. i like it but am not able to keep it for more than a couple of seasons. must not like the summer heat here because it really began to decline as the temperatures steadily hit the 90's.
