Grasses

   

Grasses

Grasses are an integral component of the perennial landscape. They provide a long-season of interest with summer foliage, fall flowers, and dried winter seed heads. They are very disease resistant and require low water needs with little maintenance.

Our dormant grasses are 1-year old plants with large crowns that are full of vigor. Keep them evenly moist until growth appears. Once established, they can be allowed to dry out between watering.
