Grasses

Ornamental grass landscaping is an easy, low-maintenance option for adding interest to containers, beds, and landscaped areas of your property. Ornamental grasses are a top pick for gardeners looking to add color year-round, with pretty feathery flowers. Many varieties are deer-resistant, and can provide excellent ground cover.

Autumn Flame Grass (Miscanthus purpurascens)

This is one of the very best Miscanthus cultivars available today. Its fantastic fall color, upright habit, early flowering time, and extreme cold hardiness have certainly earned it this recognition.

From early to midseason, the leaves are a pleasant grey-green. In the fall, they turn a brilliant reddish orange. The seed heads begin to appear in late summer with magenta hues. As winter approaches, they transform into silky white panicles which are especially lovely when backlit by the early morning or late afternoon sun.

Miscanthus is versatile from a design standpoint; it can be used as a specimen, for massing or screening, in large containers, or at the pond’s edge. Plant this grass where its wonderful interest can be enjoyed.
