Ornamental Grass

Ornamental Grass

Low-maintenance visual appeal that lasts all year long

Ornamental Grasses deliver texture, variety, and beauty to the garden. Use them to create a backdrop that sets off your finest flowers, or choose plumed varieties that will become their own focal point. Taller varieties are excellent for creating living privacy walls and wind screens. Easy to grow and maintain, grasses add interest to a garden by changing with the seasons. One season brings striking foliage, the next the elegant plume of bloom, and in the fall, a shift in color as the plant prepares for the winter.
