The grasses, including sedges, rushes and true grasses, are one of the most carefree and long season groups of herbaceous ornamental plants. Dwarf to gigantic, shade tolerant to sun loving, evergreen or deciduous, the grasses are the stalwarts of the contemporary garden. In this class, you will learn how to lend color and texture to your garden, how to use grasses in combination with other plants along with maintenance basics. You will come away with a renewed perspective and love for the versatile grasses.
Pre-registration required.
