Mexican Feather Grass,
catching a tiny breeze and burning brightly courtesy of the final rays of the Central Texas sun in the Patch. I have lined a couple of my pathways with this grass, it adds so much animation to a garden, requiring only the slightest of breezes to get the show going. It is a great companion planting to anything spiky, yuccas, agaves, sotols, you name it.
The most elegant of grasses. At least until it’s panicles stick together late in the year and it starts to resemble matted island hair!
Here are a few more shots of my favorite grass (not my entries)…
