Ornamental Grasses

Myers Landscape Nursery offers a wide variety of ornamental grasses.  All grasses require full sun for best performance.


There are so many options for ornamental grasses, we are only able to share some of our favorites on this page.   If you have a particular grass in mind, give us a call at 574-457-5354 and we will let you know if we have it in stock.  In instances where we do not carry it, or do not have it available, we may be able to order it for you.

Sedge (Carex)

Low growing sedge. This grass makes a very nice edge plant for gardens, landscapes and walk ways.  'Evergold' is a yellow white variegated variety that is a very popular addition to the landscape.

Fescue (Festuca)

Festuca glauca Elijah Blue Fescue is a great choice for low-growing texture, with its silver blue foliage.

Blood Grass (Imperata)

Imperata cylindrica Red Baron Japanese Blood Grass that is a low to medium growing grass.  It has a nice red color throughout the season.
