How to Use Ornamental Grasses in Midwest Gardens
Add prairie style
Many varieties of ornamental grasses were once part of the tallgrass prairie that covered a large portion of the Midwest. To reproduce that look (on a much smaller scale!), use those natives in your landscaping. These extra-tough plants provide natural beauty with minimal maintenance. For best success, select grasses native to your region, such as bluestems, switchgrass or cordgrass.
