Nodding needlegrass is a perennial grass native to California, primarily in the Coast Ranges from Tehama County southward. It is often found at elevations from sea level to 5,000 feet. This quick-growing grass flourishes in the spring with medium-green deciduous leaves. Needle grasses (Stipas) have been a major component of California’s native grasslands. In the garden, this grass is best grown in small patches between chaparral or sage scrub species and mixed with various perennial herbs and annuals.

Host plant: white-lined sphinx, Juba skipper, common ringlet, and Nevada skipper
