Why We Love It

Bring some depth to your garden space with Mexican feather grass.

The deciduous plant produces thick tufts of grassy feather-like leaves that reach their apex in summer, forming beautiful arches.

Planting Calendar

Plant in March, April, May.

Flowers in June, July, August.

Planting and Care

Plant it in full sunshine.

Choose moist, well-draining compost of any type with acidic, alkaline or neutral pH.

Into the Ground

  1. Water the plant thoroughly before planting.
  2. Make a hole that's twice the width of the rootball but the same depth.
  3. Add some organic matter to the soil.
  4. Remove the temporary container and plant at the same height as it was growing in the pot, just burying the roots.
  5. Firm the soil around the plant using your hands.
  6. Water well and get well-watered until established.

Into a Pot

  1. Find a pot that's twice the size of the rootball.
  2. Ensure it has plenty of drainage holes, and put crocks in the bottom, to ensure no compost get washed away.
  3. Fill with good quality compost.
  4. Make a hole slightly bigger than the rootball.
  5. Place the plant into the hole at soil level.
  6. Firm in and water well.
