Does anyone know if Mexican feather grass will grow in Part/most shade (but not full-shade)? I'm looking to landscape a pretty steep hillside in a style very similar to the one shown in this photo. Looking for a low maintenance plant that looks great in a grid/group/mass planting like this and will tolerate part shade. (San Francisco Bay Area).

Planted at regular intervals, Mexican feather grasses provide some low amber waves of grain right next to the patio.
