Here is why I love Ornamental Grasses:

  • New England winters are long, and ornamental grasses can add such beauty to the winter landscape. This is an often-overlooked landscape season, but grasses are a standout in the winter. They add warm hues, sway in the wind and have interesting and varied textures.
  • They move with the wind which is one of their coolest features in my opinion.
  • Low maintenance is a biggie and these gems only need to be cut back in the spring before any new growth. Easy!
  • They grow super-fast and mature in about 3 years!
  • They will generally grow in challenging areas quite nicely, such as areas with poor soil and slopes.
  • The deer tend to leave ornamental grasses alone. This is a big deal if you have deer in your yard!
  • There is very little in the way of disease or pest problems with ornamental grasses.
  • The colors in fall can be amazing, especially when planted in mass and paired with other fall blooming plants.
  • They look great in cut arrangements
  • And not only all that, but some varieties even offer food and shelter for some birds.
  • Ornamental Grasses are worth your consideration. Think of where you might be able to include some in your landscape design. There are quite a few varieties to choose from that grow in our climate that will have varying heights, colors and textures.
