Mexican Feather Grass is a clump-forming native grass grown for its foliage and sways in the slightest wind.  The light silvery-green foliage is coupled with airy stems of white flowers in the summer that brown in fall with the foliage.  Grows best in full sun and well-drained soils.  Treat Mexican Feather Grass as an annual if temperatures reach below 20 in winter.
