Deer Grass is a perennial bunchgrass valued for its naturalistic appearance and adaptability to a variety of landscapes. It's a popular choice for native and water-wise gardens due to its drought tolerance and low maintenance requirements.

One of the most notable features of Deer Grass is its flowering spikes. These emerge in late summer or early fall, rising above the foliage and providing an airy, textural contrast in the garden. The spikes are slender, feathery, and sway gracefully in the wind, adding movement to the landscape.

In addition to its attractive flower spikes, Deer Grass has long, narrow, arching leaves that form dense, fountain-like clumps. The foliage is typically green and remains so throughout the growing season, providing a lush, verdant appearance.

Deer Grass is highly versatile in landscaping. It's an excellent choice for mass plantings, as a specimen plant, or used in borders and native gardens. Its natural look makes it well-suited for informal and naturalistic landscapes, as well as for erosion control on slopes and banks.

This grass thrives in well-drained soils and, once established, is extremely drought-tolerant. It can adapt to a range of soil types, including clay and sandy soils. Deer Grass is relatively low-maintenance, requiring little care beyond occasional trimming back in late winter to early spring to promote fresh growth.

Overall, Deer Grass is appreciated for its ease of care, natural beauty, and adaptability. Its ability to thrive in challenging conditions, combined with its aesthetic appeal, makes it a valuable addition to water-efficient and native landscapes.
