Giant feather grass
from Salt Lake City, UT
About Me Avid Gardener
Comments about High Country Gardens Stipa gigantea:
Tall, airy, everyone remarks on it. I have one on a test and am waiting for HCG to have more in stock. I'd gladly have a dozen. Unlike the Mexican feather grass (stipa tenuissima), giant feather grass doesn't appear to freely spread its seeds. Perhaps I'll notice seedlings in the spring. I've selected a full sun, dry rock garden location and am quite stingy with water and mulch. It's really one of my standout plants in a fully xeriscaped yard.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

A true beauty when sun his dew on efflouresence
from Hampshire Co WV
We had a gorgeous specimen I loved to watch when the sun rose and hit the dew on his seed heads. Like sparkling stars. Magical. Then the contractor destroyed it without telling me so I could save it. I hunted over 5 years to find a source. It needs to be where it can be seen in early morning with the dew. I hope my current plant grows up to be like its predecessor. A fantastic grass. Very hard to find.
To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
