Ideal Sun Conditions:
Bear grass is similar in appearance to yucca and clumping grass, but is neither. Usually found growing in high desert areas, along cliffs and rocky slopes. Thin succulent grasslike yellow-green leaves emerge from a trunkless center, are pointed and sharp edged. A plume-like inflorescence with many tiny cream colored flowers emerges early summer. Cold hardy, drought and heat tolerant.
Use in Garden
Beargrass is useful in a high desert, native, habitat and xeric garden for it's graceful and evergreen appearance. A southwest evergreen that provides winter interest as all evergreens do.
Snip off flower stalk in late winter or early spring.
