Grass Plants Description
Ornamental grass plants are a versatile addition to the gardenscape offering diverse colours, shapes and textures. Used traditionally along pathways and in borders, grasses have seen a resurgence in popularity, featuring extensively in modern landscaping and planting schemes as both a focal point and to enhance other design or planting features.
Grasses work particularly well to off-set beautiful flowering plants and those with structure such as hedging or topiary. They create movement and a softer aesthetic to both complement and contrast with other plants and with a varying colour palette can be quite striking in their effectiveness.
Grasses also add a dynamic feature within a hard landscaped environment, around or within paving and patios or finely gravelled areas and rockeries. They can be used to great effect and look particularly stunning planted around a water feature, helping it to sit naturally in its environment or even planted into containers which allows the grass to flow and move gracefully around the pot - ideal for rejuvenating and adding architectural interest to your patio planting.
We stock a number of grasses each with their own unique characteristics. Grasses that grow slightly taller, include Calamagrostis x actuiflora 'Karl Foerster' and Carex pendula which can easily grow to 1m or more. Flowering grasses include Deschampsia cespitosa 'Goldtau', Pennisetum alopecuroides 'Hameln' and Stipa tenuissima 'Pony Tails that each feature feathery or bristly type flower panicles in summer that catch both the breeze and in some cases the light too. For colourful or bright grasses, consider Carex oshimensis 'Evergold', Anemanthele lessoniana, Luzula sylvatica or the unusual Festua glauca 'Elijah Blue'. Within this diverse range of grasses there is sure to be somethng to appeal to every garden and gardener.
