Isn't Mexican feather grass invasive in Southern California?

I think that is correct. I'm in N. CA and I will never allow it again, it re seeds so easily, the tiniest spot even in blacktop driveway it could thrive. I still think it is pretty but so Was Heavenly Blue Morning Glory which can swallow an acre before you realize! I have been switching to sedge, thyme and succulants... so many beautiful plants to pick from, the lists are endless.

the grasses in the front are Stipa tenuissima ( Nassela tenuissima) or Mexican Feather Grass. There are a few Miscanthus 'Morning Light' grasses closer to the fence, in front of a few bamboos.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Annie Thornton added this to Your Garden: High Design the Easy Way
Texture. Mass plantings allow the viewer to really appreciate the texture of the plant. When you no longer need to focus your attention on contrasting colors or habits of multiple plant varieties, you are able to notice the more subtle and delicate features, such as texture. This effect can be achieved with a single species or multiples with similar textures. It's all about creating continuity and consistency.
Genevieve Schmidt added this to Breeze Into Coastal Landscapes
The vistas on the coast are so majestic that the landscaping should follow suit. Mass plantings are a great way to elevate a single species into a real theme. Here, Mexican feather grass has a softly textured appearance and moves with the breeze.Learn more about ornamental grasses

4. Elevate the ordinary. A single object, a dark metal planter that one might easily find at a garden center, is suddenly treated as a work of art. Mexican feathergrass (Stipa tenuissima) adorns the garden floor like a plush carpet, while a simple, streamlined fence forms a gallery-like wall that defines the space. Without the pot this area of the garden would lose its sense of place; with it there's a powerful point of view. The pot is a surprising focal point here — It looks stunning against the glowing grass at its base.
Marianne Lipanovich added this to Lay of the Landscape: Coastal Garden Style
Meadowlike grasses rather than a close-clipped lawn are another option when you want a more contemporary look. The soft waves mimic the look of the sea in your own yard. As a bonus, you get the feel of a lawn with minimal lawn maintenance.
J. Peterson Garden Design added this to 8 Spectacular Grasses to Energize a Fall Garden
Mexican Feather Grass (Stipa tenuissima) This is one of those perfect midsize grasses that seem to find their way into many gardens. Its soft texture and lighter green color set it apart from other grasses, and its low-maintenance needs endear it to many gardeners. It's known to be invasive on some parts of the American West Coast, so check with your local nursery before planting it.USDA zones: 6 to 10Water requirement: Average to low once establishedLight requirement: Full to partial sunMature size: 18 to 36 inches tallPlanting tips: Plant in fall or spring and pop out any unwanted pups when they spring up. It's not necessary to cut this smaller grass back, but use your hands to comb out any dead growth from around the perimeter of the plant at any time.
When it comes to touchable plants, this grass garden gives you two options in one space. In the front, a wide planting bed filled with Mexican feather grass (Stipa tenuissima, zones 6 to 10) creates a sea of soft waves. Its cloudlike appearance belies its hardiness; it handles low-water conditions well and can easily self-sow to the point of being invasive. Note: Cut the plants back before the seeds are ripe to prevent it from self-sowing. Behind it 'Morning Light' silver grass (Miscanthus sinensis, zones 5 to 9) softens the fence line. Silver grass species are known for their size range and showy plumes. A wide variety of silver grass species and hybrids is available; look for alternative common names such as eulalia grass, Japanese silver grass and maiden grass. Most thrive in partial to full sun.

1. HearingYou can’t beat grasses for helping mitigate the din of car traffic, neighborhood leaf blowers and that persistent voice on your shoulder that says you should go buy more plants. If you can’t have a water feature, grasses are the next best thing for a soothing soundscape.
