grasses for north side
We relandscaped my front yard which faces directly north. We removed the shrubs that were in front of the windows and put a 4 ft. wide gravel bed, then large stepping stones for the mailman who always cuts across the lawn neighbor to neighbor (no sidewalks this side of the street.) Then the new landscape begins.
So on the gravel bed I have three 21 inch poly round planting tubs that I want to put in some ornamental grasses. It will get late afternoon sun, which in the summer can be quite intense. The rest of the time the 2 story house will shade the gravel area. The bottom half of the house is red brick, black shutters - the top is white clapboard, black shutters.
I would like something that would grow about three feet high with smaller grass/s in front/ or flopping in front of the taller grass.
Location is 6a Hartford CT.
Any suggestions or thoughts???
