Flowers/Plants/Shrubs/Trees - Fountain Grass
Order:Poales Family:Poaceae


There are many decorative grasses from the Kansas prairies that I'm going to lump together under the category Fountain Grass. I think they all work about the same way. In the summer the grass is at it's tallest and looks very much like a green fountain. In the fall it develops colorful seeds which turn into puffy wisps in the winter. Cut it down to the ground in the early spring and repeat.

All species pages are currently being updated with more useful descriptions and information.
