Need angel hair thin grass for pot

kris2001(6a - s.e.PA)May 25, 2009

Hi

I recently saw a fescue grass in a garden center. It was like "angel hair "....very thin and dancing gently...

What kind is it?

Can I put it in a pot in my deck? Will it reseed? How can I "keep" that perenial?

The nicest , thinest grass- are they all Fescu?

At least a half a dozen qualify. Can you post an image?

Sorry; responded to wrong thread.

As for the grass you're asking about, perhaps Nasella tenuissima, formerly Stipa. Various common names, among them hair grass.

Hi

Saw this in waterloo gardens in sePA. Called
Festuca Tenuifolia Angel hair.
Is it good? Will it survive a big pot in z6a? Will it reseed? Overwinter etc? Will it spread? Is this better than Nasella?

I also saw a nice angel hair like 8 " high grass with white small flower/seed heads like lil' earbuds---How do I id that?

Tks....

Update:

I just need a compare between 'Festuca Tenuifolia Angel hair' and 'Nasella tenuissima, formerly Stipa'.

Which is best with looks , I am putting in a big pot ,full sun wanna reseed /overwinter etc...
Pls give a compare...

And I found the other "earbud" like grass its 'fiber optic ' grass :)
