Related to, but larger and finer than Stipa tenuissima, this is a very tactile feather grass that you'll want to run your hands through.
The cloud-like seed-heads are abundant, splayed out and feathery so that one plant can look like quite a large clump.
It is compact, dainty and well behaved enough to plant with quite delicate perennials although it does have a tendency to self seed.
It will look quite at home in a rockery, tub or planter where the arching graceful habit spreads over rather than through smaller plants. For some strange reason very few people cultivate this grass which in our view is a shame.
Deciduous but if the seed-heads become too matted in winter, sheer the very tops off and go lower in spring.
