Dusty. Native, Wild, Grasses. 

This photo is from Pacific Horticulture. Here is the article. i am very attracted to the dusty tones, the white speckled bark, dots of yellow achillea and especially.. these wild grasses. I am on a wild grass kick, admiring their softness, wanting to comb through them all day and let them hold me in the afternoon. This one is new to me. Most of them are new to me. so here is to first grade…stipa tenuissima. Its common name is mexican feather grass. Although they remind me of california meadows, I am also reminded of the middleofnowheremidwest. Well, after researching a bit I found they are native to Texas, Mexico, Argentina, and Chile. Bluestem.ca recommended to be partnered with Achillea (which is seen here), Rudbeckia (little black eyed susan from back home), miscanthus (very tall grass), Sporobolus (prairie dropseed), and this nice panicum ‘northwind’. i’d like to keep exploring different grasses. Grasses and wildflowers will always have my heart. especially if there are a few wild horses roaming throughout.
