Ornamental Grasses - Common Names

Ornamental garden grasses are wide ranging with many cultivars. It is always best to try and obtain with the proper botanical cultivar name.

However, even with the proper name, it is not always possible to get what you are really after because of the wide variations resulting from growing grasses from see (The easy way). A good supplier will have stock that is true from selected plants.

Life and gardening is not always simple, so to help, we give a list of the most-used common names. Again, common names vary from area to area, so always best to try and actually see the stock that you want, growing as mature plants.

This preamble about common names is not meant to be pessimistic, or denigrate growers. there are many good grass growers who specialise. Unfortunately - as with many things gardening - there are also others!
