Stipa tenuifolia 'Ponytails', commonly known as Ponytail Feather Grass, is a graceful ornamental grass prized for its delicate appearance and unique texture. This perennial grass forms dense clumps of fine, hair-like foliage that sway elegantly in the breeze, resembling flowing ponytails. In summer, airy panicles of feathery flowers emerge, adding a soft, ethereal quality to the landscape. 'Ponytails' is drought-tolerant once established and thrives in well-drained soil and full sun. It's an excellent choice for adding movement and interest to borders, rock gardens, or as a focal point in containers.
