Recommendations for Varieties
I am planning a border planting around the curved portion of our patio, and I would like to create a multiple species planting of different heights and styles of grasses. Ends would be small, moving up in size to the middle portion, where the tallest would be. I was thinking starting with Elijah Blue Fescue on the edge, maybe moving to a dwarf fountain grass, then to a Feather Reed grass or miscanthus. The plants would need to be planted adjacently, so as to not shade out shorter varieties, and I think this would help create more movement and interest. The area is on the border of part sun-to full sun. It receives ample morning sun, with a bit of shade from about 12-2:30ish, then back to sun for the remainder of the day. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
