Masses of Grasses(3 of 9)

For many gardeners, the fall flowers that matter are the ones atop their Miscanthus, switch grass and pampas grass. Try combining grasses that have similar height but slightly different color of plume. Some of the dwarf grasses are great for containers on the deck.

Tip: 'Little Zebra' adds all the movement and sound of its larger cousin but doesn't flop in midseason like so many large zebra grasses (Miscanthus sinensis 'Strictus') do.
