An ideal choice for the edge of a meadow or a small garden, this spreading grass was selected from Point Arena along the Mendocino coast for its small size and intense blue-gray color. The foliage reaches a height of about 6 inches with flower stalks rising a few inches above that. Looks best when cut close to the ground in early winter. Plant in full sun near the coast, but protect from hot afternoon sun in warmer areas. Provide moderate to occasional water in inland locations. Selected by Jana Mariposa Muhar, a long time native plant enthusiast, landscape gardener and nursery operator. Deer resistant.
