Ornamental Grass Collection 2011 Open House

We had a great time on Wednesday, October 12, 2011 from 1:00-4:00 PM at the  OPEN HOUSE at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum Ornamental Grass Collection. About 40 people toured the collecting, seeing over 30 new grasses and sedges that have been planted this year. Despite the rain and clouds, it was a good time to see the grasses at peak flowering for the warm season native grasses such as switchgrass, Indiangrass, and prairie dropseed. We compared 30 different miscanthus, along with several new annual and perennial pennisetum, and purple moorgrass.  Thanks for coming!  Look for the 2012 Open House in early October 2012.
