Q. Can you recommend a suitable ornamental grass?
I recently exposed a 4’ x 3’ section of sidewalk on the west side of my house in Philadelphia. The section is right above a sewer inlet. This site gets full afternoon sun. I’m looking for a recommendation on a suitable ornamental grass that is dense and grows to a height of 3-4 feet. My initial thoughts - switch or Indian grass – what do you think?
Both grasses you suggest are fine. Here are two more to consider: Carex pansa--forms a tight mat and spreads (not a clumping form) or consider Schizachyrium scoparium-- Little Bluestem--pretty, a clump form.
