Grasses & Perennials


With a renewed interest in ornamental grasses, we want you to truly understand how creatively they can be incorporated into any design.

The option of choosing one of the many wonderful varieties of ornamental grasses is quite extensive. Appreciation of this versatile plant will highlight all gardens by creating soft, feathery, foliage accents with delicate flowers/seed heads ranging in colors from pinks to reds to whites.

From dwarf to over 6’, grasses can screen an unsightly view or create a visual accent that many other plants could never achieve. Foliage, from course to fine, from yellows to reds to whites, enjoy a variety as the wind flows through its leaves creating motions and sounds that will relax the listener. Consider these wonderful low-maintenance plants into your next garden design.
