Low clumps of bluish colored blades and flower plumes that like to dance in the wind creates a very whispy appearance.

  • Attractive blue-green fine-textured leaf blades
  • Fluffy flowers move gracefully in the wind
  • A great accent

Looks wonderful when grown in groups. May reseed and naturalize an area.

Interesting Notes about Love Grass:

Everything about this grass is fine-textured and in the hottest time of year when it is in full bloom it creates this hazy, soft and airy mass that all moves with the breeze. It is not just pretty though, because it will grow in dry sandy soils without extra watering during drought periods.
