Bottlebrush Grass is a 2' to 3' tall native perennial cool season grass. The 6" to 10" long terminal spike seed heads feature bristly 1" long bristly-looking flower heads growing perpendicular to the stem and strongly resembling a brush used to clean bottles. The plant tolerates dry to moist soils and does well in full sun or part shade. It is easily established from seed and is usually used planted in clumps in the garden or included in woodland settings, native plant gardens, and habitat plantings. Birds are attracted to the large seeds.
