Easy texture and color in your landscape.
Ornamental grasses are fantastic planting companions for shrubs and perennials, bringing another element of texture and motion to the landscape. They come in a fantastic range of sizes, from a foot or less in height to more than six feet. Don't let their graceful presence fool you, though - these are some of the most rugged, durable plants available.
How to Plant Ornamental Grasses
First, select an area that receives 6 hours of sunlight or more per day. Specific sunlight and watering needs will vary depending on the type of Ornamental Grasses you choose, but most like full to partial sun. Also, choose an area with well-drained soil.
How to Grow Ornamental Grasses
After you've planted your Grasses, establish a regular watering schedule. The easiest way to know when to water is by sticking your finger into the soil. If the soil is dry, then it’s time for watering!
To help the roots get established in the ground, dig your hole two to three times the size of the root ball, and water your Ornamental Grasses at least once or twice a week. This will promote growth and help the roots get established in your landscape.
