Landscaping with Grasses

Grasses are an excellent way to add depth, texture, and color to your landscape! In addition to adding several aesthetically pleasing aspects, landscaping with grasses is easy in our climate, as most are drought tolerant and thrive in full sun! Continue reading to explore the different varieties available to you!

Blue Dune Grass

Known for its unique color and blade, the Blue Dune Grass adds a unique texture to your landscape. The foliage is a beautiful blue-silver and produces a plume that resembles wheat. Thriving in full sun and drought conditions, this grass is sure to please when paired with maroon flowers or shrubs! In addition to its easy care instructions, Blue Dune Grass tends to grow in clumps and spreads vigorously. This grass grows 2 feet by 3 feet.

Cosmopolitan Grass

Also known as Maiden Grass, the Cosmopolitan Grass is showy with its long variegated blades. This grass brings a cream variegation with mint green borders to your landscape. In addition to its beautiful variegation, Maiden Grass also puts on a show in the fall, as the blades turn golden yellow. Thriving in full sun, this grass is also known to be pest and disease free! Growing 6-8 feet tall and 4-5 feet wide, this grass goes a long way. We recommend using the Cosmopolitan Grass in hedges, as borders, or around gardens to create a backdrop!

Dwarf Fountain Grass

Another full sun-loving grass, the Dwarf Fountain grass is best known for its plumes that dance in the wind! The plumes are soft to the touch and rise high above the green blade. Because this grass only grows 2-3 feet tall and 1-2 feet wide, it is considered to be a dwarf grass. Dwarf Fountain Grass is perfect for smaller yards or gardens and borders!
