Stipa tenuissima. Mexican Feather Pony Tails Grasses. A neat, compact, perennial grass, this has lots of close-packed, stiff, thread-like stems forming a strongly horizontal shape about 60cm (2ft) tall.
In summer, plants are covered with masses of elegant pale feathery seed-heads which are held a little above the foliage.

These can be cut and dried when first opened for use in winter arrangements indoors. Alternatively, they make a useful winter food source for finches and other seed-eating birds.
