Ornamental Winter Grasses

Creating Winter Interest
Our winters can be long and cold leaving the gardens looking barren and lifeless. By selecting plants that provide visual interest it’s possible to make winter a season of natural beauty. Trees and shrubs with exfoliating bark adds interest to the winter landscape. The use of plants with colorful stems and twigs can add a high impact when planted in large groups. The use of ornamental grasses provides color, texture and movement to the winter garden. Lastly, and most popular, is adding plantings with berries or cones that persist throughout the winter.
