The other fall foliage

It’s relatively obvious from our posts that we are sizable fans of ornamental grasses. Part of it is for the muscle they can add to an otherwise too-perennial-heavy landscape, and part of it is for the year-round interest they can provide. Save the short month they disappear when when cut back to the ground in spring, they are pretty much a constant presence in the landscape, including in fall and winter. This is all too important when that flush of summer color fades and the landscape begins to go to sleep; other, muted colors, forms, and shapes need to take the place of green and carry the lansdcape into spring. Our reliable faves include Calamagrostis x acutiflora ‘Karl Foerster’ / Karl Foerster feather reed grass, Koeleria macrantha / June Grass, and Schizachyrium scoparium ‘blaze’ / Blaze little bluestem. Be sure and mix cool- and warm-season grasses into your landscape so that you get that early flush of green from the cool ones while the warm ones still sleep.
