Ideal for adding intrigue and beauty to any space, ornamental grasses are a perfect addition to any garden. Whether you're adding to an exisiting display, or just getting started - we have an ornamental grass option that's right for you.
Ornamental grasses are a great way to create depth and texture in the landscape of your garden. Filling borders and other gaps in the scenery, ornamental grasses are able to tolerate a wide range of outdoor conditions and are often evergreen – but to make sure they stay healthy, try to find them a spot in the garden that affords them lots of light and moist, well-drained soil.
Which Ornamental Grasses Grow Tall?
If you’re looking to create privacy in your garden, ornamental grasses might be a good solution to consider. Popular ornamental grasses capable of growing to heights that make them suitable for privacy include Zebra Grass (Miscanthus), Pampas Grass (Cortaderia), Fountain Grass, (Pennisetum) and Feather Reed Grass (Calamagrostis).
Do Ornamental Grasses Need To Be Cut Back?
There are two key types of ornamental grass – evergreen and deciduous. Evergreen ornamental grasses require the least maintenance, only needing a tidy up as they grow. Deciduous ornamental grasses, however, will need cutting back each year to make sure they stay looking their best.
