June 2006 Plant Profile: Stipa gigantea

Beds 5 and 6 hold two large specimens of an ornamental grass that has always been an eye-catcher come June. Giant Feather Grass is a native to Spain and Portugal. It thrives is mild areas and withstands drought and heat once established. The plants are architecturally appealing by themselves or as a companion plant adding a fine, airy texture for interest through the summer, fall and even winter months! A Great Plant Pick!
