Low growing ornamental grasses make a great addition to a home’s landscape. Short grasses offer beautiful color and texture, and add graceful movement to any garden. Ideal to plant around rocks or along a garden path, short ornamental grasses come in myriad varieties and range anywhere between 2 inches to 2 feet tall. Colors run the gamut from blue and green, to pink and purple.
Because short grasses are hardy and low maintenance, they make a popular ground cover. Even better, most low ornamental grass is pest-resistant – even deer – and many are drought tolerant. Short grasses have become more popular in recent years as landscape decor, beautifully accenting any garden style. They provide interesting contrast when used along with perennials, and there are grass varieties that will flourish in shade or sun, cool or warm temperatures, and any soil types.
Make an impact in your home garden with ornamental grasses, which add vibrant color and attract birds. In a variety of colors, short ornamental grasses are a wonderful landscape addition, used as filler, borders, edging flower beds, or even in containers.
