Ornamental Grasses for Landscaping

The selection of ornamental grasses for landscaping grows every year. Grasses can be used as a specimen plant in your perennial flower bed or are even better in large groupings and mass plantings.

Ornamental grasses are just a natural for that backyard "prairie theme". Plant your shorter grasses to edge your bed, use medium sized grasses to blend textures and add those imporant vertical lines to your bed. Save your tall ornamental grass for the back of your bed.
