Grasses – Buy Exotic & Tropical Grasses Online in the UK

Grasses are not normally associated with exotic gardens, which is a shame because they add movement and verticality ad are a good substitute for plants we can’t grow in our more temperate climate. Whether short or exceedingly tall, grasses give height, stature, and form, many with a very architectural appearance, with the added attraction that the foliage catches the wind, adding motion to the landscape. If space is limited, use some of the smaller species and cultivars, which look especially good weeping over the sides of pots and containers. I have also included a few other  plants here that have similar spiky or grassy feel to them.
