Ornamental grass adds variety to your landscape
You need plants that can stand up to your weather conditions and also make an impression. One type of plant that fits the bill is ornamental grass. This foliage option will give your landscape texture, color and lively movement. Plus, if you choose ornamental grasses that are native or adaptive to Texas, you can make your property more efficient (saving you money on utilities).
Not all grasses are created equal, though, so choose ones that are noninvasive and will benefit your landscape.
Here are the best 5 ornamental grasses to plant in your Texas landscape.
Mexican Feather Grass
Get some good movement in the wind with Mexican feather grass. It has graceful leaves and flower heads that can bring your landscape to life.
Dwarf Hameln Grass
With fluffy, buff-colored plumes, dwarf Hameln grass is a great backdrop plant.
Blonde Ambition Grass
Add cool-season interest to your property with blonde ambition grass, which has blonde seed heads that last through winter.
Purple Fountain Grass
We love this variety so much we planted it at our office, hence Purple fountain grass provides good color with maroon blades and red flower spikes. It does best in full-sun areas, and it is drought tolerant.
With feather like blooms in fall, the Big Muhly is a good option for any region in Texas. The grass requires full-sun conditions, and it’s best to install it in early spring or fall. It grows 3 to 4 feet high with a 3- to 4-foot spread.
