Suggestions needed for native grasses

Asked May 16, 2019, 12:50 PM EDT

Please suggest attractive, drought-resistant, non-clogging and non-invasive grasses suitable for large planters. The grass would not be mown because we need to prevent damaging underlying drainage systems below the grass. A native-to-the-Baltimore-region prairie grass might work.

There is a nice selection of native grasses, with photos, size, etc. and the cultural info, in the excellent online publication, "Native Plants for Wildlife Habitat and Conservation Landscaping: Chesapeake Bay Watershed."

You'll be able to find some good choices there.
