Ornamental grasses have grown enormously in popularity over the last few years. There are grasses for just about every type of garden, in any part of the country and occupying any aspect. Some grasses like shady, north-facing sites, others need sunshine, shelter and warmth. Some grasses form low-growing mounds whilst others grow to a height of several metres. Many ornamental grass varieties spread using seed whilst others remain in clumps where you have planted them, gradually expanding outwards. They can be deciduous or evergreen and come in colours ranging from green, yellow, gold and red to black.
If there’s one category of plant a garden shouldn’t be without, it’s ornamental grasses!
