medium size ornamental grasses

stephen9(8)February 1, 2009

I've been looking to find an ornamental grass that is in the 3 to 4 foot range. I don't like the fountain grasses, they seem to common to me. I like miscanthus but they seem to be in the 5' plus range. Any ideas and where I could order them from?

A good place to start is the Grass Comparison Chart at Bluestem.ca:

http://www.bluestem.ca/grass-comparison-chart.htm

The chart gives you comparative heights, for both foliage and blooms, and you can click straight to pictures and descriptions.

Bluestem specializes in grasses for colder climates, so there will be many others which will work in your zone, but you'll get a feel by starting there.
