Grasses & Sedges

Though critical components of native-plant communities, grassy species sometimes are overlooked in favor of their showier wildflower neighbors. Grasses out-compete many weeds and provide structure and support in diverse plantings, fuel for controlled burns and year-round visual interest. Carex (Sedge) species have attractive seed heads through spring and summer. Well-known and affordable prairie grasses have striking fall colors and offer winter cover for birds and small mammals.
