We associate grasses with the landscape. As representatives of the wild nature, they bring naturalness to our gardens and through their informal character they are able to weave neighboring plants into a harmonious and soothing whole. This naturalistic way of using ornamental grass is meant to make the plants look like in nature. The plants are combined in a free way by growing them in pollen and groups of different sizes or just criss-cross in the border. Successful plantings therefore look playful and spontaneous.

Favored by landscapers for its tendency to grow in decorative bunches. Sporobolus heterolepis (prairie dropseed) is a fine-textured ornamental grass with long, narrow arching leaves forming attractive round tufts, about 18 inches tall. The leaves range in collor from a rich green hue in summer to golden with orange hues in the fall and fades to light bronze in winter. From late July to mid-September cloudy haze of tiny flower heads, noted for their unique coriander fragrance, elegantly rise up to 36 inch tall on slender stems.
This plant, commonly called autumn moor grass, is a cool season, clump-forming ornamental grass which typically grows 8-12″ tall with narrow flower spikes rising above the foliage clump in summer to 18″ tall. Flowers give way in autumn to silvery-white inflorescences. Attractive, narrow, yellow-green foliage (to 3/16″ wide). This grass is indigenous to the moors of Europe and puts on its best flowering display in autumn, hence the common name.
Molinia caerulea ‘Edith Dudszus’
Molinia ‘Edith Dudszus’ forms dense foliage of narrow, upright leaves and thin plumes of dark purple spikelets which are borne on dark purple arching stems. The stems turn colour as they age, becoming orange by late autumn.
