OK, I just placed my last plant order for spring, I swear! I already ordered all my seeds way back in early January plus a few fun splurges like dwarf apple trees for England (my edible garden area). This time I'm ordering (more) ornamental grasses because they're just so great in a low-maintenance garden (I should write a post on that soon... they add texture, movement, offer long seasons of interest, they come in all shapes and sizes for sun or shade, I could go on...)
Part of the new front yard garden plan includes a lot of festuca glauca - one of my favourite "repetition plants" to add year-round texture and colour contrast. It looks good with just about everything in sun or part shade.
And I need some calamagrostis (feather reed grass) 'Overdam' to add textural interest in the back, shady corner of the Adventure Garden.
And I wanted to try Alopecurus pratensis because, well, just because Christine in Alaska recommended it.
So that's it. I'm done. No more shopping until it's actually warm enough to plant something outside.
I ordered the grasses from Bluestem Nursery.
