Stipa arundinacea, commonly known as Pheasant’s Tail Grass, originates from the Mediterranean region and is not native to California. It stands out as one of the most resilient grass species. This ornamental grass forms clumps adorned with slender, bronze-orange leaves that shimmer when illuminated by sunlight. This popular grass is ideal for rock gardens and containers. And when planted in mass, it can make a distinctive statement in Bay Area landscapes. It does best in environments with partial sun and a consistent watering routine. We recommend it as a striking and adaptable choice for landscape pros.
