Grasses for garden

Janelle O\’Callaghan asked 13 years ago

Any advice or suggestions regarding grasses that I could use in my garden? I am looking for some grasses and have identified some like Carex but just wondering if there are any others you could suggest that would give spectacular colour and are ideally shallow rooted as they will be near a biocycle unit. My soil is neutral and has the advantage of full sun. Thanks in advnce.

All grasses are relatively shallow-rooted. Try the following: stipa, festuca, calamagrostis, deschampsia, miscanthus, hakonoechloa and chionochloa. These are grasses; carex is strictly a sedge.
