Native Meadow Grasses
I'm so glad to have discovered the Gardenweb forum. Thanks to those gardeners who so generously offer advice! I'm particularly happy to see a native plants category, for my aim is to restore a 2-acre site to its natural (mostly woodland/forest) state. Here is my question:
I'm trying to decide on a native grass for a small (approx 40'x20')meadow area. From what I've seen, many native grasses tend to have fountain-like clumps at the base. Given that it is a small area, I think the lumpiness would be unattractive (esp. in winter). Is there a native grass that is more wholly vertical? I am also hoping it might be more supple than stiff----as I would love to see it sway in the wind.
