Grasses and Bamboo

Grasses and bamboos are very popular at the moment and are pretty when planted together like this. They will florish in sun or shade (this border is in shade most of the day). Some, but not all, of the grasses are evergreen and the bamboos retain some colour for most of the winter. As you can see in this picture they also make very good plants for containers and I know that some people have them as feature plants on their patios or by a water feature. If you are not careful they can get lost in the general border when planted singly so I prefer to plant them in groups.
