(24-60" tall x 18-36" wide) Curb Appeal Ornamental Grass Collection offers a low maintenance, high impact solution when it’s time for a home garden refresh! Easy to grow grasses provide texture and visual interest year-round, so they are perfect for enhancing an entrance, lining a new fence or side yard, or anywhere in the yard that needs a pick-me-up. They can be planted as a backdrop to make a new garden appear fuller, to screen unsightly utilities, to add privacy, or create a dramatic focal point. Blackhawks Big Bluestem Grass (5-6 feet tall when mature) emerges in spring with dramatic dark green grass blades that shift to dark purple in fall. Hameln Fountain Grass (2-3 feet tall when mature) has graceful, arching stems that emerge in spring with soft wheat-like seed heads; in fall, it turns rust-gold and in winter ages to pale blonde, offering seasonal interest. Karl Foerster Feather Reed Grass (3-5 feet tall when mature) provides a vertical element, with wheat colored seed heads from mid-summer and continue through fall. Ornamental grasses are drought tolerant once established and do best in average soil with full sun. Birds are attracted to the seed heads and they love the habitat created by the grasses. All are deer resistant. Leave them standing for winter interest and habitat, and simply cut them back in the spring before new growth commences.
Our Curb Appeal Ornamental Grass Collection is roughly 8' x 5' if planted together and contains 9 plants:
