We were introduced to Fetuca mairei by a garden designer in the Spokane, WA, area who grew this grass because it was very drought tolerant and cold hardy. Hailing from the Atlas Mountains of Northern Africa, it certainly has both those qualities. It is also beautiful, its fine foliage turning golden in the high heat. For us, this clumping grass stays partially green if given water in the summer.

Early summer.   24-32 in. x 32 in.

Sun     Zones 4, 5, 6, 7, 8
