Ornamental Grasses

Ornamental Grasses

i

Ornamental grass plants are a versatile addition to the gardenscape offering diverse colours, shapes, textures, heights and movement to give your garden an uplift in design. Used traditionally along pathways and in borders, grasses make an outdoor space more inviting and attractive. They have steadily grown in popularity over recent years, featuring extensively in modern landscaping and planting schemes as both a focal point and to enhance other design or planting features. Ornamental grasses work perfectly 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 to a hard landscaped environment, around or within paving and patios or finely gravelled areas and rockeries. Particularly effective around a water feature, grasses help it to sit naturally in its environment. As a versatile alternative, try planting grasses into containers to rejuvenate and add viusal interest and movement 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 lovely range of grasses there is sure to be something to appeal to every garden and gardener.
