Beargrass offers the best of all worlds because it looks like a grass but is an evergreen succulent that produces flowers. Its grass-like leaves maintain their color and form year-round, adding a solid structural element in the garden. Tall spires of tiny white flowers cluster around 3’-6’ stems in the early summer. Give beargrass plenty of space, as it is not a true grass and responds poorly to shearing. A native of the Southwest, it will thrive with minimal supplemental irrigation once established.
