|These increasingly popular low-maintenance
and pest free plants are beautiful and dramatic
in the landscape. Their strong vertical presence
adds motion and sound as they sway in the
breeze. Most offer extended seasonal interest,
as their dried plumes can be left standing
in the winter to catch the light. Ornamental
grasses come in many sizes and colors of
blue, gold, red and tan. The variegated varieties
make wonderful accents. They are spectacular
when included in containers plantings. |
The following should be considered
Plant ornamental grasses in full sun or bright
shade in average soil. Dig a hole that can
easily accommodate the root ball. Most types
should be cut back in the spring.
- Make sure the variety will survive the winters
and summers where you live.
- Select the color and height for the site
to be planted
- Determine the drought tolerance of the variety.
Most like dry conditions, but some thrive
in moist soils.
