Downtown Mediterranean Garden

Wide pathways and the blowsy California native plant Deer Grass are elements in this water-saving, low-maintenance front garden. Edible plants in this garden include grape, lemon, orange, and pommegranate.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Annie Thornton added this to Great Design Plant: Deer Grass
How to use it. You'd be hard pressed to find ways not to use deer grass in the garden. It thrives in full sun and well-drained soil, but is fine with some shade and seasonal flooding. Mass deer grass with other flowering natives, especially pollinator attractors, for a soft and meadowy wildlife sanctuary. You'll want to leave plenty of room, at least a few feet between plants, to appreciate deer grass' soft, mounding form once it fills in.If you prefer something simpler, use deer grass as a specimen. Its breezy texture can also be used to soften architectural succulents and Southwest natives, without making the look too cluttered.Deer grass is also a garden problem solver. Unstable stream banks and hillsides can benefit from its root system.
