12 New Ornamental Grasses For Low Maintenance Garden Appeal [slideshow]

Nothing says low maintenance like ornamental grasses. They add texture, movement, and all-season color to the garden. Many of the ornamental grasses available are native to North America and provide habitat, food sources, and protection for pollinators and other wildlife. They are versatile enough to tolerate several types of soil conditions and garden locations, which is why they are so great for troublesome areas with rocky soils, slopes, poor drainage, or too much sun or shade. Once established, they are some of the best drought-tolerant plants around. When you add in sedges, rushes, and other grass-like relatives, there are no limits to what you can do with this class of plants in the garden.

Check out 12 new ornamental grasses and grass-like varieties for growing in your greenhouse or the garden.
