Grasses

GRASSES

Ornamental grasses come in a wide variety of colours from vibrant to subtle. They have graceful shapes and measure from low shrub size to towering blooming stalks. Whether in containers or planted in-ground, these perennials are low maintenance and add wonderful accents to any landscape design.
 
For any "frost tender plants", we will plant these grasses in containers. Then use our "over-wintering" service where we deliver them to you in the spring and return them to our climate controlled greenhouses in the fall. 
PURPLE FOUNTAIN GRASS

 

Of all the ornamental grasses, Purple Fountain is probably one of the most popular. With purple or burgundy leaves and it's soft, fuzzy-like blooms, this grass adds a graceful touch to any landscape. Try grouping a few plants together for a dramatic effect.

Let us over-winter this tender perennial in our climate controlled greenhouses for you allowing you to enjoy them year after year. (special order)
