Stipa tenuissima (Pony Tails) (Stipa tenuissima (Feather grass))

Not bad for 80p in a Homebase sale last year ... so I bought 2. I want about 30 ... so I shall have a go at growing from seed a bit later in the year.

I've just planted 2 of these in a South facing gravelled area so here's hoping they thrive ! Yours look healthy.

They seem very happy ... the are in the most exposed area of the garden, hopefully they'll make it through the winter as I over wintered them planting them out in March ... sadly though I forgot to cut them back before the new growth in the spring ... I'll remember next time.

Hope yours do well too.
