A parched garden under a burning sun?
Dry, poor soil!
Here's Stipa capillata.
Stipa has fine leaves in tender green tufts all year round and in the summer long inflorescences with soft silvery highlights. Stipa capillata is happy in direct sun in light, poor, dry soil.
This is the ideal plant to adorn dry, sunny gardens.
In a contemporary garden, we like to plant Stipa capillata in mass to enjoy its light curls and swirls.
