What Houzz contributors are saying:

Genevieve Schmidt added this to 8 Ornamental Grasses for Coastal Gardens
Mexican feather grass: Nassella tenuissima is a finely textured, loosely swaying grass that seems to fit with the weathered, natural look of the coast. They reach 3 feet tall and tolerate harsh coastal winds, lean sandy soil and little water once established. Cut them back to a height of 5 inches when the blades begin clumping together and looking like large dreadlocks.
