Re: ornamental grass/bamboo

One of my all time favorite ornamental grasses, that hasn't been mentioned  
is Bamboo Muhly grass, Muhlenbergia dumosa.  It is such a graceful growing  
grass, and has bamboo like look, except it isn't invasive, doesn't grow as large  
and is easier to dig.  I have a stance of this next to one pond, it  
gracefully hangs over the rocks and just gently touches the water....blows  
beautifully in the wind.  It is an evergreen perennial.....only problem is  that the 
birds in early spring strip it clean for their nests, so I end upwith  bamboo 
like sticks, but they quickly leaf out again with lush thicker green  threadlike 
foliage from the canes.  Very nice.

Don't  forget that bamboo is grass. I'm greatly tempted by various bamboo. I
like  the look of other grasses, but have only grown black mondo &  opitc
fiber grass. No great success with  either.
