Ornamental Grasses

by oglesby

muhlenbergia-capillaris-muhly-grassWhy has interest in ornamental grasses grown rapidly over the last few years?  Simple, grasses can enhance the beauty of almost any garden almost anywhere with almost no maintenance.  In the garden they provide motion, texture, softness and color.  They blend in, fill in or standout and scream “Here I am!”  There are short ones, tall ones, small ones and really, really big ones. And if that’s not enough, during the season many of them reward us with beautiful plumes of feathery flowers.

So it’s simple, if you’re not growing ornamental grasses you should be and if you are then give Oglesby a try.  Many of the grasses we offer are produced directly from our own tissue culture laboratory and you will be amazed at their vigor and performance.  We also offer select ornamental grasses produced by seed to give you the varieties you need to be successful.  Call us…You won’t regret it!
