It's easy to forget that ornamental grasses are just - grasses. We mow our lawns long before the turf grass can go to seed. But left alone, it will. All grasses flower, but some are more attractive than others. And some flower later than others. We tend to gravitate toward the showy variegated or early pluming types, but there are plenty of ornamental grasses that put on their best show in the fall. They still give you a full growing season of swaying and rustling, but they shine among the rich saturated colors of the fall border. Here's a collection of stunning fall grasses to add to your fall garden.
