Ornamental Perennial Grasses
We offer 19 native grasses and sedges. Grasses are host plants for many butterflies, provide architectural and winter interest, can "frame" flowering plants, and add multisensory appeal with motion, texture, and sound. The beauty of grasses ranges from the late-summer purple mist of Eragrostis spectabilis, or purple love grass, pictured above at a YNPN-designed Ypsilanti butterfly garden, to the bronze beauty of Sorghastrum nutans,
or Indian grass.
