Ornamental Grasses in Landscape Design

Ornamental Grasses are an essential part of landscape design.

They add texture and movement to the garden and give the garden multiple seasons of interest.

Grasses suitable for the home garden come in a wide range of sizes, shapes and colours. They thrive in the range of soil conditions found in most area gardens but benefit from the addition of lots of humus from compost, leaf mulch or other organic material. Their very efficient fibrous root system makes them quite drought tolerant once established. 

At Whitehouse Perennials we sell grasses in one to three gallon pots. We recommend planting before the end of August to allow them time to establish before the soil cools down in the fall.
