Very hardy grasses

I am looking for some ornamental grasses that are hardy in my zone 4 garden. I have not been able to find many. Any hints or helps?

Thanks!!

Hi Jennie...spend some time at the Bluestem.ca website linked below. They specialize in ornamental grasses for cold climates. Start with the comparison chart, which will give you sizes, habits, culture and hardiness. Then it will lead you back into fuller descriptions and numerous photos for each grass.
