ORNAMENTAL GRASSES FOR SHADY AREAS

Asked August 2, 2014, 10:56 AM EDT

I have an area that is 80% shade, with only the hottest part of the day giving it any sun. Are there any ornamental grasses I can plant that will grow in these conditions?

The following grasses will tolerate shade: Carex species/most sedges, tufted hairgrass, hakonegrass, bottlebrush, common rush, most woodrushes. You may have to call around to find these grasses except for sedges, which are quite common.
