Description
Oh, how we love our native grasses! Tough, drought tolerant and beautiful. From commercial applications to suburban landscapes and even green roofs, we see their adaptability and functionality. Because of our love for more varieties of the grasses, we now have the stately ‘Northwind’ Red Switchgrass and the beautiful ‘Standing Ovation’ Little Bluestem. But what about some of the other great grasses that we see on botanical walks. Can they also work in our cultivated beds? We will look at some of the ‘no-so-mainstream’ native grasses and their use in our landscapes.
