This is a beautiful species of grass! When in flower, the nodding clusters are purple to pale green, with many long, straight bristles; after flowering, the bristles frizz up. In parts of the West, this grass creates a beautiful carpet along roadsides and in waste areas! Great for planting in prairies and meadows!

Hordeum jubatum (Squirrel Tail Grass) Seeds
Soft tails
This grass grows less than a foot tall, readily reseeds and is tough enough for dry conditions. It grows along the roadside where nothing else can stand the winter salt spray, the hot sun beating off brick walls and both people and dog traffic. It looks great if grown in large or small clumps. It manages to out compete many weeds.
