  1. Hi,
    Really enjoying seeing the grasses in their prime. At this time of the year its hard to remember their subtle beauty.
    Keep on posting.

  2. Thanks Joe! Dreaming of reawakening in Spring!

  3. In the photo of Miscanthus can guess the cold air blowing in the inflorescence, beautiful!

  4. So gorgeous...I so wish I had space to really mass grasses like that...the Pennisetum look so glorious in large numbers! I also wish more people appreciated the amazing blooms of Panicums...they are so like glowing metallic beads, love 'em!

  5. Thanks Fred & Scott for your comments! I agree; Scott, and think Panicums are underused in landscaping!

  6. Hi, just found your beautiful blog. Was wondering if any of the grasses you are showing would work in flower bouquets? Do they grow in pretty wet soil, the Willamette Valley of Oregon? Really beautiful photos!

    1. Thanks for your kind comments! Yes, many of the grasses we grow look terrific in flower bouquets! Calamagrostis, deschampsia & Miscanthus varieties can all handle wet soil. It's a very small world; I have looked at your Blog as well! I'll try emailing you with some more suggestions!
