Mexican feather grass

All spring and summer I enjoy my Mexican feather grass . I love watching it gently swaying this way then that way. I like  how it blurs the area around the stock tank . I've let it seed itself about  , pulling out ones I don't need . Leaving a few more each year.

But then this happens , and I don't like the mess ...


I rake and rake and comb though the things . It's never  enough.
I even had to pull a strand from his nose !

  1. Oh my, take care of that adorable little nose.

    The neighbors just planted a bunch of MFG, so I expect I'll have some soon.

  2. I have the same problem with Mexican feather grass. I don't like the messy stage, and it's really bad when growing next to plants with sticky leaves like Cistus ladanifer and Mimulus aurantiacus.
