All Ornamental Grasses
(in our perennial department, excludes Liriope)

It’s the time of the year when all of the ornamental grasses are starting to shine. They’ve been inching up from the ground over spring, slowly but surely, keeping a low profile, until now. Driving around, you see them everywhere, their foliage waving to you in the breeze. Just looking at them seems to induce a feeling of calm. They offer strong architecture, great texture, and three seasons of interest. They are all deer resistant, and many of them are native to this area. Combine that with the fact that they are easy to grow, and require little attention once established. What’s not to love?

(Eurybia & Symphyotrichum)

They may seem common, or uninteresting to the well-traveled gardener, but asters shouldn’t be overlooked for being either of those things. Their perky, brightly colored flowers are the mainstay of the fall garden, with many blooming into late September (or into October if they’ve been trimmed in late June/early July). They are a very important source of food for pollinators because of their late season bloom time when so little else is available. They are deer-resistant, many of them are native to this area, and they are drought tolerant once established.
