My First Ornamental Grass Garden
I am in central FLorida and have a few small grasses in containers around my ponds but I am wanting to start a large garden in my front yard. I have a pretty big area - kidney shaped - with a little shade but mostly sunny. I am thinking of putting tall grasses in the back (to hide my fence) and coming forward with shorter grasses ending with a very short grass across the front. Then I don't know if I should just mingle and mix all different grasses together or keep each type of grass in their own little section. Color - should I mix colors or keep with similar colors. I want more of an informal look. Also when checking locally I can't seem to find anything except the red or white fountain grasses, and they seem so ordinary. However if ordering online I would have to get much smaller plants because of the cost of such a large order due to the size of space I have to fill. So, suggestions please as to how to begin. Sorry for the long post.
