Grasses are perfect for adding structure, texture and movement to the garden. They can be grown in the border, as specimen plants, containers or even to create a privacy screen, bringing calm and tranquillity to the garden as the breeze gently rustles through their foliage. Taller varieties are great for adding height and architectural flair, whilst wispy grasses can help soften areas of hard landscaping or enliven the senses in the sensory garden. Grass plants combine well in planting schemes with flowering perennials or broad-petalled flowering shrubs to create a subtle or explosive splash of colour. During the winter, ornamental grasses are majestic with their frosted feathery or tail-like flowers and foliage. For dramatic arching leaves and fluffy flower plumes consider Miscanthus Sinensis, or for a splash of colourful variegation consider Carex Evergold or the popular Zebra grass, Miscanthus Zebrinus. Phormium plants work well in containers and Yuccas make excellent centre-pieces. Alternatively for the largest of the feathery grasses, look no further than Stipa Gigantea and for bamboo, visit our bamboo plants section.
