How to Care for Your Ornamental Grass You Bought Online
The amount of sun that an ornamental grass needs is dependent on the variety. White African Iris Shrubs, Dwarf Pink Muhly Grass, and Miscanthus Gracillimus Shrubs are examples of ornamental grasses that thrive in full sunlight. On the other hand, ornamental grasses like Variegated Flax Lily Shrubs and Aztec Grass Shrubs do better with partial sun and partial shade.
At our online nursery, we offer over a dozen different types of ornamental grasses, so be sure to plan for the appropriate amount of sun.
You can plant smaller dwarf ornamental grasses in pots or containers. Small ornamental grass plants like liriope or daylilies will perform perfectly in containers. They will need repotting every few years as the plant outgrows its home. Ornamental grass plants for containers are a great option for gardeners with small spaces or no yards.
