Texas Blue Grass

I have a small stand of Texas blue grass, Poa arachnifera, and it is just amazing right now. If I wasn't such a fan of biodiversity, I'd plant my whole yard in this grass. It is a cool season grass, remaining green all winter, only to shoot up these fantastic fuzzy, soft flower heads that wave in the breeze.

What a really cool grass! I'd love to have some wilder grassy areas in our yard but at some point if I let it grow out it starts bugging me just a bit. I usually let the bluestem hang out by our pond in the fall for quite awhile.
