Grasses are a great way to add texture, height and winter interest to a garden. They can be use in mass, as a backdrop or as a living fence. They can be grouped for a natural look. Or they can be used alone, as a single specimen within the garden. Ornamental grasses add a natural wispy appearance and provide structure during the winter months. Autumn is when most grasses come into their prime, their ornamental plumes and fall colors shine. But grasses can be planted anytime during the growing season. Almost all ornamental grasses prefer sun or light shade and good drainage. These are some of our favorites. All are deer resistant!
