Plant Information

The Carefree Ornamental Grass Pre-Planned Garden includes 15 perennial grasses that complement one another beautifully throughout the entire year. With shifting colors, gorgeous plumes, and varying heights and textures, this garden is a low-maintenance landscaper's dream come true. Best of all, ornamental grasses provide important habitat for songbirds and other wildlife. Mature plants will fill a 12 x 6' rectangular bed or 72 square feet of planting space.

Includes: 1 'Karl Foerster' Feather Reed Grass (Calamagrostis), 1 'Red Head' Fountain Grass (Pennisetum), 1 'Northwind' Switchgrass (Panicum), 1 'Karley Rose' Fountain Grass (Pennisetum), 1 'Sapphire' Blue Oat Grass (Helictotrichon), 1 'Blonde Ambition' Blue Grama Grass (Bouteloua), 3 'Elijah Blue' Fescue Grass (Festuca), and 6 'Big Blue' Liriope (Monkey Grass/ Lily Turf).

Comes with detailed care instructions and 3 diagrams illustrating correct layouts for planting in rectangular, island, and corner-shaped beds. We do reserve the right to make substitutions; however, our replacement plants are always very similar.

Q & A

Plant With These:

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
