Grass of the Year

Nebraska Statewide Arboretum has been showcasing a Grass of the Year on their website. In 2014 they selected a sedge, Carex greyii; and for 2015 they selected Sporobolus wrightii, giant sakaton. Below, right, in the photo, is giant sakaton at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum in August 2014. Left in the photo is Sporobolus heterolepis ‘Tara’.  Both tough native plants.
