The grass family is one of the largest in the plant kingdom, having evolved to cope with almost every imaginable condition, ensuring there is a variety suitable for your site and situation. Some slow growing grasses such as phormium and yucca provide an architectural display with stunning, often variegated, sword shaped leaves, working well in the border or as a centre-piece in containers. Other grasses such as certain varieties of miscanthus and carex have whispy stems that help bring tranquillity and calm to gardens of all sizes. Whispy grasses provide movement and a relaxing atmosphere as their foliage rustles in the wind, whether dotted throughout mixed border schemes, mingled amongst other plants; in groups in the sensory garden; or simply to soften areas of hard landscaping. Grasses also act as an interesting contrast to other plants and may be used as a backdrop to showier plants, combining particularly well with flowering perennials and broad-petalled flowering shrubs to create a subtle or explosive splash of colour. Deciduous varieties will look good until the end of autumn, undergoing subtle colour changes as the seasons progress.
