Tree & Shrub Club: Ornamental Grasses

There’s nothing more alluring than the look of grasses, with their colourful soft tufts, swaying lazily in the warm winds of a summer’s afternoon. What a show many of the species and cultivars offered here can provide to your landscape. For textural interest, try an ornamental grass clump here and there, or plant one type en mass, to achieve a brush stoke of moving colour.
