Last year I was driving around Cape Cod and passed by this house where their ornamental grasses had been decorated for the holidays. Of course I love the way dried grasses look when left natural in the fall, but the artist in me saw the potential in those Miscanthus with bows, and this fall I decided to have some similar fun in my own landscape.
I went into my gardens with bark-covered wire, twine, assorted ribbons and the idea that anything goes!
Next week I might do something with the Hakon grass in the perennial bed….
If you decide to play with your ornamental grasses this holiday season, send me a photo!
