Grass plants for rockery garden

Shop our selection of the best grass plants for the rock garden, ideal for bringing architectural and colourful foliage into your rockery area. Rockeries are constructed as natural-looking rocky outcrops, ideally on a slope in full sun. They work particularly well alongside ponds, water features or next to walls and can be given extra height and contours using railway sleepers if your garden is naturally flat. The best grasses for rockeries tend to be smaller, slower and lower growing varieties, most reaching between 50cm and 1 metre tall. Grasses help bring a sense of movement and tranquillity to the rockery with graceful, arching stems that gently rustle in the breeze. They can also help to soften any sharp lines in the rock or stone you use to create a more sensory style and appearance. Ornamental grasses combine well with flowering perennials or broad-petalled flowering shrubs to create a subtle or explosive splash of colour. Choose Carex elata Aurea for tufts or arching, narrow-bladed, bright yellow leaves with fine green variegation. Alternatively, Imperata Red Baron is an excellent, upright, ornamental deciduous grass with rich red, sharply pointed blades fading to bright green at the base. The unique and breathtakingly beautiful leaves become more intensely-coloured as the season progresses, developing to a deep blood-red by the autumn.
