Native to the Southwest, this adaptable grass boasts lush green-blue foliage that softens desert landscapes. In the fall it sends up slender tan flower spikes that create a stunning contrast with the mound of luxuriant foliage. Plant in full sun, reflected heat, or part shade. Provide ample water in the summer to keep foliage looking lush. Cut back as needed in the spring.
