Ornamental Grass Wreaths

Ornamental Grass Wreaths

For all you crafty people out there who also have ornamental grasses in your garden, I suggest you craft some wreaths or swags with the flowers/seed heads of your grasses.

Do a Pinterest search for Wreaths Ornamental Grasses to get an idea of what to do with these:

Pennisetum alopecuroides 'Red Head'
Pennisetum alopecuroides ‘Red Head’

Or

Miscanthus sinensis 'Adagio'--or is it 'Yaku Jima'?

Or any of your Carexes (sedges), such as The Buckeye Botanist’s seed heads here (I threw mine in the compost before I realized what a treasure they were):

Of course, that’s only if you’re planning to cut them down in the fall anyway, so you’ll get fresh new growth in the spring. If like me you want to keep the fading growth and seed heads for wildlife (cutting them late winter or early spring), then maybe just harvest a few here and there. It’s only one wreath after all.

Corkscrew rush--Juncus effusis var. spiralis. Slow to establish, it'll be years before I can harvest
