Ornamental landscape grasses vary in size, shape, color and texture in both foliage and inflorescence (seed head). Ornamental grass
landscaping makes use of mature plants that range in height from 6 inches to 14 or more feet. Grass forms vary from low mounding to fountain shaped to tall vertical. Foliage color includes shades of green, yellow, blue, red, brown and variegated (green and white mixed).
Ornamental grass landscaping takes advantage of the displays of grasses that change foliage color in the fall. Fall colors of straw yellow, orange, red or purple are available. Landscape grass foliage texture varies from fine to coarse (blade width from 1/8 to 1/2 inch).
