Ornamental Grasses

Welcome to the Ornamental Grasses pages. Here you will find those plants that belong in the true grasses (Poaceae), sedges (Cyperaceae) and rushes (Juncaceae) families. Other grass-like plants such as Ophiopogon (black grass) are to be found in the Perennials section.

As there are quite a lot of plants in this section we have selected some of the most popular to have their own sections and the rest are in the general listings, links to all of them below.
