A sculpturally interesting grass of architectural quality. Where Stipa gigantea can't be grown due to climatic difficulties, Sporobolus wrightii can fill the niche. A large grass (1.2-1.8m tall), the foliage is light grey/green from which soft feathery seed heads are produced in Summer. These 'feathers' change to a golden straw colour in late Summer and then to a bronze in Autumn. Best cut back in early Spring to allow the new growth to look fresh and clean. Native to Arizona, California, Texas and northern Mexico. Very drought tolerant but will look at its best with some irrigation. Will grow in all soil types in full sun.
