Pruning: Mexican Feather Grass is relatively low-maintenance and does not require regular pruning. However, you can trim back any brown or damaged foliage in early spring to maintain its tidy appearance.

Fertilization: Mexican Feather Grass does not require heavy fertilization. A light application of a balanced slow-release fertilizer in spring can provide a modest nutrient boost, but excessive fertilization should be avoided to prevent overgrowth.

Winter Protection: Mexican Feather Grass is generally hardy in zones 5-10, but in colder regions, some winter protection may be needed. Apply a layer of mulch around the base of the grass to provide insulation and protect the roots from freezing temperatures.


When planting Mexican Feather Grass, select a location that receives full sun for optimal growth and flowering. Ensure that the soil is well-draining to prevent waterlogged conditions, as this grass prefers drier soil. Dig a hole slightly larger than the root ball, place the plant in the hole, and backfill with soil, gently firming it around the base. Water thoroughly after planting to help the roots establish. Mexican Feather Grass can be planted in both pots and in the ground, making it a versatile option for various garden settings.

Mexican Feather Grass is drought-tolerant and prefers infrequent but deep watering. Water the grass thoroughly when the top inch of soil feels dry, allowing the water to penetrate the root zone. Avoid overwatering. Mexican Feather Grass is well-suited for xeriscaping and water-wise gardening.
