Mutton Grass is so called as it grows a bunch grass in many of the drier plant communities of the west and plains and is preferred by sheep. A fair sized bunch grass of soft texture, humm-m, tasty. I never know what to do with grasses like this,. Too small to make a statement, doesn't blend well with most native landscapes, but I'm not a grass nut. Grass nuts love to blend grasses, some poppies, some California fuchsia, Blue eyed grass, maybe yellow eyed grass, some Iris, put in a bench and break out the wine and cheese. Each to their own, this one is for you grass nuts.
