What are your views on grasses?
|Two photos above: "Carex Oshimensis Evergold". Fully hardy. Height and spread 8 x 8 inches.|
|"Ophiopogon Planiscapus Nigrescens" or Black Mondo Grass. This plant provides good ground cover and forms thick roots under the ground that spread. Like many grasses, it can be difficult to remove. Fully hardy. Photo taken Oct 2010.|
|Black Mondo produces berries in Winter around December, and flowers in the Summer (photo below).|
|"Carex Buchananii" Leatherleaf Sedge - this plant reaches 2 feet high, is fully hardy and likes moist soil - great for Ireland!|
|Leatherleaf Sedge looks lovely covered in snow. Photo taken Nov 2010.|
|This one I'm not sure what its called. I like the way it always looks wind swept. I never cut my grasses but apparently most grasses like to be cut in Spring.|
