Perennials and Ornamental Grasses

Here's a look at my college roommate's perennial border in its summer glory just outside of Washington, D.C..Until the better part of ten years into my career as a professional landscape consultant/designer and arborist, I had little knowledge of "perennials" (i.e., plants that you don't need a chainsaw to cut down), and had absolutely no clue as to what an "ornamental grass" was!

The good news is that it's never too late to learn. Because this is true, I now consider myself to be pretty knowledgeable on both topics.

So, for answers to questions you may have about the perennials and ornamental grasses in your landscape and gardens, just click on the links at right!
