Add Beauty to Your Fall Landscape with Ornamental Grasses

One of the most beautiful garden plants in the fall season are the numerous varieties of ornamental grasses.  If you want to add one or more of these grasses to your landscape, make sure you choose ones that are hardy to your area.  In the Ottawa area I usually recommend zone 4 or lower to my clients to ensure the grasses survive our cold winters.  There are many to choose from:

These fall grasses are very easy to care for; you can cut them back to the ground when the ground freezes, or leave them blowing in the wind over the winter, and cut them to the ground in the early spring, before they start to turn green.  Whichever method you choose, you won’t be disappointed in their beauty…

One thought on “Add Beauty to Your Fall Landscape with Ornamental Grasses

  1. I really love the look of all the ornamental grasses, and they are beginning to show themselves more and more in Southern California landscaping. Apparently they are hardy in our dry climate. I have added some very small varieties, but I’m eager to add some of the larger for a little more drama. I never thought of them as able to tolerate the snow!
