I live in western Mass. and I have seen several tall grasses around some of our local businesses. They look great and I would love to have some in my yard. Are they perennials or annuals? Seeds or bulbs? Can I grow them in this area?

Seeds of ornamental grasses are hard to find so it might be best to start with small plants. Most grasses are perennial and clumping, so you can divide them in 2-3 years and have lots of new plants. There are a number of sources for ornamental grasses and each variety will have specific zones of hardiness. For a complete listing, contact one or all of the following sources:
Ambergate Gardens, 8730 County Road 43, Chaska, MN 55318
Kurt Bluemel, Inc., 2740 Greene Lane, Baldwin, MD 21013
Limerock Ornamental Grasses, 70 Sawmill Rd., Port Matilda, PA 16870
