Grasses-Rushes: nursery plants online

Grasses and Rushes are in fashion, what a shame! How I would hate to be a follower of fashion. Graminifolius plants are for us, a vital ingredient in the art of composing the garden landscape. There are over 10,000 species of grass alone giving species for every location, whether it is for architectural accents, filling or drifting. Living in a landscape dominated by grasses why should we grow them in the garden?

Generally they are trouble free and our climate is suited to them and they assimilate the garden into the pastoral landscape, requiring only an annual demonstration of your coiffeur skills combing out the dead foliage and knots.
