Ornamental Grasses

With their beautiful flower plumes and wide range of foliage colours (including blue, black, silver, red, yellow and green) ornamental grasses look spectacular when used in a prairie-style setting. Alternatively, let them swish and sway through a herbaceous border, where they act as a subtle backdrop for more ostentatious perennials.
