Glorious Grasses

October 3rd 2014 in In The Garden

Embrace the glory of grasses this Autumn. Grasses it seems are always in and out of fashion, and people either love or loathe them. For me its all about the love! Grasses add interest to any border at any time of year but they are at their most splendid in Autumn and Winter. The low sun and moist air offer a light that really enhances grasses. This picture was taken on our grass beds next to the mosaic, and is of Miscanthus sinensis 'Flamingo'. This beautiful pink flowering grass really catches the light, as do most Miscanthus, and they come in all kinds of sizes for all knids of borders. Go on, give a grass a home!
