GRASSES and SEDGES
Grasses can make inspirational planting. They bring the air of the wild into a garden. Here are a few of my best ideas.
*Use in a mixed border, they are a great change of texture and a cooling colour. e.g. Miscanthus, Pennisetum, Millium
*Grasses look great in “designed plantings “among rocks and large gravel. e.g. Stipa, Miscanthus, Cortaderia, Carex
*Some grasses look fantastic as potted specimens e.g. Stipa arundinacea, Hakenochloe, Carex
*Try some annual grasses with poppies. Fabulous. e.g. Hordeum jubatum
