'shenandoah' or 'heavy metal'?
Hi all. I'm completely new to gardening and would like some advice. I have a small front yard with a grouping of 4 utilities - one of which is an orange fire-hydrant. I had an in-store consult at my local nursery for help planting something around these utilities. He suggested 1 russian sage, a grouping of 3 Gaillardia Fanfare, and a grouping of 4-5 shenandoah switchgrass.
But I'm not too sure about the strong wine color that shenandoah will get in the fall. I don't know how it will compliment the sage and fanfare. So, I've been thinking about heavy metal switchgrass. But again, I'm not sure how the yellow color will compliment the others in the fall.
Does anybody have any opinions? Or maybe another suggestion? I want dense coverage of up to 4-5ft high. I don't think I want to go much higher than that since it's a really small front yard.
