Briza-Quaking Grass

Propagating Briza or Quaking Grass can be done either in the early spring, blooms April-June or fall by digging up the clump and dividing the crown, it will thrive in any type of soil and is drought tolerant once established. The blooms resemble rattlesnake tails, if creative, and flow like oats when in bloom and although colors are basically insignificant they can range from a greenish purple to a greenish tan. The plant should be trimmed back in late summer to tidy it up, in warmer zones it is evergreen, deer resistant, reaches a height of 12"-18" and prefers a cool season in full sun or partial shade.
