Landscaping with Ornamental Grasses

Spring is just around the corner here in the Midwest.  If your garden interests lie in ornamental grasses, then here is an article just for you and me.  I love them too !

“Ornamental grasses come in a wide variety of sizes, varieties, and colours. They mix perfectly with shrubs like hydrangeas in a cottage style garden; or blended with lavender or Russian Sage in a seaside garden. Today I’ve collected some stunning ideas for ways to incorporate ornamental grasses into your garden design…”
