Good morning to all of you Great Lakes gardeners! I just found this forum and hope to gain quite a bit of knowledge from "local" gardeners. I'm close to the Toledo area and would like to know what kind of perennial grasses anyone out there has that will winter over in our neck of the woods. I recently bought a samll "Sea Oats" start at a local Master Gardener sale and have Maiden Grass that I've divided a couple of times that are doing great. I bought some Fountain Grass last year from Lowe's but it didn't winter over...I didn't read the label closely at the time to catch that it wasn't hardy enough for my garden.
I forgot to add that my flower bed is wide open to the west/swest winds but I understand that grasses love that and the movement is beautiful to see.
Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
