Ornamental Grasses


 

Ornamental Grasses add soft texture and low-maintenance beauty to the landscape. From small sizes of Blue Fescue & Carex that get 18" to 24" tall to large Fountain Grass & Maiden Grass varieties that grow to 4-5 ft tall, there is a variety for every situation. Mix them with other textures and forms to add interest. Use tall grasses as a backdrop for flowering perennials, dwarf shrubs, or seasonal color beds. The possibilities are endless! One of the best features of grasses in general is that they are drought tolerant once established (with just a few exceptions), don't like a lot of fertilizer, don't need spraying for insects or diseases, and hungry critters such as deer and rabbits don't like them.
