For years I have found immense beauty and interest in these grasses – and not just for their ease of cultivation, muted color or texture. I appreciate the movement they demonstrate throughout the year (depending on weather) and find it constantly fascinating. The slightest breeze allows them to sway, rocking back and forth in a meditative flow. During stronger wind gusts, they take to dancing in a frenzy. There is no time of year that these don’t look lovely in a coastal garden. Planted in a vast swath they look wild and free… or, alternatively, plant a few next to a structured agave attenuata or other large succulent, for interesting balance. In almost any situation, they are magical.
