Our list of Ornamental Grasses from around the World



We highly recommend you start your ornamental grass seeds inside and then transplant them outside as "plugs". To create a plug, find a plug starting nursery flat that has at least 50-72 cells in the flat, fill the flat with a good seed starting mix, plant 5-7 grass seeds in cell. Once the grass seedlings are a couple inches tall, or have become root bound in the cell, it is time to plant outside. This will greatly increase your success rate and give you healthy, vigorous grass crops in about half the time of starting them outside.

If you are having problems finding plug starting nursery flats, please check out our Plug Starting Tray Kit. If you do not need a lot of plugs, we recommend you use the Burpee's Ecofriendly 25 Pellet Seed Starting Greenhouse Kits.

A perennial grass growing 1 1/2 - 3 feet tall, will tolerate poor soil and makes a good groundcover. Widely adaptable to most any soils and growing conditions, suited for zones 3-10.
Little bluestem is one of the most popular ornamental grasses on the market today and is widely used in landscaping. Often used in plantings because it is short and mixes well with wildflowers for increased attraction. This native grass has a wide range of colors which are various shades of blue and green hues. These colors turn to a striking bright red in fall and are are topped by fluffy silvery-white seedstalks. This native grass can reach heights of two to four feet tall and a patch of this waving in the wind is truly a wonderful sight for your landscape.
Little bluestem is a vigorous, long-lived native bunchgrass, widely distributed over the United States; but most prevalent in the Central and Southern Great Plains. It is usually found associated with big bluestem native grass. It is more drought resistant that big bluestem, and a smaller plant - usually not reaching over 3 feet. Leaves are up to 8 inches long, and not over 0.25 inch wide. It furnishes dependable grazing and cured hay, but is not highly palatable. It is especially valuable for erosion control.
