Shade tolerant tall grasses for MN zone 4

Asked September 15, 2017, 11:50 AM EDT

Hello. We are looking for options for shade tolerant grasses. I've viewed the slide show of MN grasses by Mary Meyer though it didn't delineate shade tolerant. Are there any? Thank you Chris Headrick

Most ornamental grasses do best in full isun and not in shade. There are some however, please see the list in the fact sheet.
