Xerophyllum tenax - Bear Grass

Xerophyllum tenax - Bear Grass

from 3.00

Sun to partial shade. An unusual Lily perennial usually seen hiking at elevation, Bear Grass also makes a striking feature plant in a native landscape. Its foliage resembles a clumping grass, from which emerges a giant flower stock, typically 2-3’, and with creamy clusters of spiky blooms that can surpass 3’. The seed-stalks remain visible for an extended duration into the fall, providing food for many birds and beneficial insects. It is drought tolerant, pollinator friendly, and great for stabilizing hillsides due to its slowly spreading rhizomes.
