Stipa - Feather Grasses

Among the most beautiful and graceful ornamental grasses, Stipa (Feather Grass) are evergreen or deciduous, mostly perennial grasses, forming tufted clumps of arching, linear leaves. In summer and fall, they enjoy narrow panicles with long awns which add to the beauty and translucency of their inflorescences. Rustling in the wind and animating your plantings, whether in containers, mixed herbaceous borders or rock gardens, these full sun grasses are easy to grow.
