Ornamental Grasses

Ornamental grasses are an elegant addition to any garden. They provide interest through all the seasons starting in the spring with the emergence of new growth; in the summer the fully-grown foliage “swishing” on a summer’s night; in the fall their tassels and plumes (inflorescences) are in full bloom and provide food for birds; and in the winter the stalks laden with fresh fallen snow make for a lovely winter scene. Grasses are an eco-friendly plant requiring little water, lots of sun, can tolerate various soil conditions and do not require fertilizer or chemicals.
