Ornamental grasses deliver a lot of bang for the buck. They introduce exciting textures to the garden, along with movement and even sound as they rustle in the breeze. You can select grasses in nearly any hue, including dark burgundy, steely blue, white and green blends, gold and bronze. Leaves often change colors during the growing season, shifting to rich, deeper shades in autumn, followed by muted winter tones. Grass seedheads can be delicate, but in most cases they command attention and introduce a new element to a planting. Check out a few of our favorite grasses.
