I love the simple drama of this Crescent Beach garden; there’s only, as far as I can tell, three types of plants used here. I could never be that restrained. Miscanthus sinensis ‘Gracillimus’ (Maiden grass) is in the background, Pennisetum villosum (Feathertop) is in the mid-ground, and there’s another grass in the foreground that I can’t identify. The plantings suit the seaside community and the house they surround.
See how the grasses seem to grow right out of the pavers on the front drive? And the use of white sand to further blend the plants with the pavers? Genius.
This was originally posted September 8, 2005 as I Love Grass No. 2. (And if you’re wondering, this is I Love Grass No. 1)
Now that’s a fantastic way to display grasses! I love how they seem to come right out of the pavement!
Hows the book going? You must be getting excited for the release!

I love the grasses we have in our garden. Especially when the wind blows through them.
