I once had an Oriental Fountaingrass, native to around the Caspian Sea, here that kept wanting to spread out way too much along the west side of the garage. I replaced it with these two Little Bluestem (Schizachyrium scoparius) grasses several years ago behind Tree Face, and they look very good all winter.

those are very nice!
I got tough and pulled out my Miscanthus sinensis.
Plant it and they will come.

Good! The larger selections of Miscanthus are rough and hard to work with. Anyway, native species are nicer.

I haven't gotten into grasses in my gardens yet. With my woodland setting, I didn't think they would look right and probably not the right growing conditions anyway. Then I got thinking about the Hakone grasses after getting a dark green and a chartreuse green division from Jan in NJ at one of our Mid Atlantic swaps. They look like they fit in nicely and I'd like to add more. If I ever get to landscaping around the pond, some of the other kinds of grasses might be an option there.

Thanks that you like Tree Face! The Bottlebrush Grass of Hystrix patula grows well along woods as does the Bur Sedge (Carex grayii) and Fox Sedge (Carex vulpinoidea) and Plantain-leaved Sedge of (Carex plantaginea) are all great native, easy grass plants.
