Re: ornamental grass!

And remind folks that many, many ornamental grasses have blades that are
as sharp as razors...always, always wear gloves when working with
them...learned this through personal experience! Do you know which
grasses you'll be talking about? One of my favorite big grasses is Zebra
grass (sorry, can't remember the botanical name)...it has spots and is
lovely! But one must remember to plan room for some of these grasses at
maturity...they get huge! My zebra grass is over 8 feet tall and close
to 3 feet wide. Good thing I planted it where it had room to expand.
Perhaps my favorite thing about the grasses in my gardens is what they
do for my garden come winter...they provide great structure and a
beautiful contrast to all the snow.

We have a lot of ornamental grasses. I know that if you want it to get
high <br>and wide water it plenty! If you want to keep it controlled....
less water. <br> Some of them that are so big we do trim at the end of
spring, and then <br>again in the fall. We also have gotten many new
plants from them, we had no <br>choice as it really was over powering.
Doubt this will help that much, but I <br>tried.<br>
