Grasses

Ornamental grasses are among the best plants to add a softening element to the landscape, particularly when planted close to boulders or other hard surfaces. Grasses can also add motion to the landscapes as blades and stalks sway in the breeze. The color and form of grasses change through the year, creating seasonal interest, and birds are attracted to seed-laden spikes after the bloom period.

Although many ornamental grasses are excellent for revegetation, some can reseed in the landscape. Choosing grasses, such as those recommended here, and watering with drip irrigation will generally eliminate or minimize reseeding. Water ornamental grasses as you would groundcovers (not grass lawns), and cut them back close to the ground every one to three years to rejuvenate growth.
