Plant of the Week: Ornamental grasses
Prairie-style planting is all the rage just lately and is a gorgeous way to combine stunningly beautiful, natural-looking perennials like achilleas, salvias and rudbeckias with graceful grasses for a low-maintenance and dynamic display which reaches its crescendo in late summer.
It's a fantastic way to show off grasses at their best: after flowering, many grasses including miscanthus, tall stately Calamagrostis x acutiflora 'Karl Foerster' and Stipa tenuissima hold their seedheads into winter and look fabulous rimed in frost. Leave them all winter then trim them to the ground, along with the perennials growing alongside, in early spring before they burst into life and start the spectacle all over again.
Herbaceous perennials plants (those that come back every year) can be split at this time of the year ; they can be lifted over the next few weeks, cut in half, or even smaller, and planted over a much wider area. Not only will it give the plants a new lease of life ; but means you get all those lovely new plants for nothing!
