Mosquito Grass

Bouteloua

       
Bouteloua gracilis full sun

We wish more plants were like this one! This North American native is tough, drought tolerant, and adds delicacy and movement wherever it’s placed. Slightly iridescent, Mosquito Grass offers tiny seed heads borne atop thin, wiry stems. Resembling aerial minnows, the inflorescences dart above 1 ft. clumps of dense, narrow blades. Plant them next to a garden seat or steps where they can be enjoyed at close range.

Blooms June–October.

Size: 18" high x 12" wide; hardy to zone 4.
