"I found an excellent web site full of easy-to-understand information about ornamental grasses, hosted by the University of Illinois Extension. The web address is http://www.urbanext.uiuc.edu/grasses/ and I have embedded a hot link directly from my web site to help you find it. Just go to www.landsteward.org and find this column archived under The Plant Man heading. Simply scroll down and click on the link. (There's even a really neat 3 minute video about grasses that you can view!) The site reminds us of an important point: you need to understand the growth habits of grasses before you plant them. Why? Because most grasses are classified either as clump forming or rhizome forming, and they have very different characteristics!"
