Ornamental grasses are becoming more popular in the landscape. They provide color, texture, interest and diversity throughout the garden. They are extremely adaptable and there is a grass for just about any situation. Most ornamental grasses can stand alone when used as an accent plant or focal point, especially when plumes of several species are present.

Many of us have plants in the landscape suffering from the extended drought. Plants that have been well established in the landscape are struggling and in some cases dying from lack of water. When will it end?
Planting palms in the landscape can create a tropical escape and drastically change the look of a garden. Even though palms do not have a showy flower, their large, evergreen leaves are natural attention getters. A single large palm or a grove of smaller palms can serve as a focal point for any landscape, large or small.
