Ornamental grasses are easy-care, fast-growing, dramatic foliage plants-and they are deer proof! They are in their glory in the late summer and fall when your garden needs a boost! Their “flowers” are actually seed pods and remain attractive all winter long. The Natureworks demonstration gardens contain many examples of how these beautiful, carefree plants can be used in a landscape setting. They are often featured in our themed Saturday Morning Garden Walks in late summer and fall.
We carry a full line of ornamental grasses, including native varieties, grasses for shade, and those that are suitable for smaller-scale gardens. Please consult our current catalog for detailed descriptions of our grasses and contact our store for availability and pricing.
