(Japanese Blood Grass, Red Baron Japanese Blood Grass)

Japanese blood grass...

(Afro Meadow Rush, European Meadow Rush)

This is a curly version of the straight hard rush thrives both in a wild wetland and a constrained modern container garden. Its parent species dwells in moist habitats across northern Europe, but 'Afro' exhibits a greater ability to survive dry spells than its parent. In habitat these plants live in the margins of waterways that rise and fall with the seasons. This makes them tolerant of growing in both dry ground as well as when fully inundated. This dark forest green, grass-like perennial has wiry,...

The foliage is coarse, colored a powdery blue, blue-green or even gray, with individual blades that are flat, linear and slightly arching. During summer, atop stems above the foliage, a cluster of tiny flowers forms an upright spike that...

(Perennial Ryegrass)

With exceptionally dark green and glossy leaf blades, perennial ryegrass is a turfgrass valued for use on athletic fields and home lawns when seasonal temperatures are cool. If never mowed, this clumping grass becomes an upright, fountain-shaped mass of narrow leaves and stems that may have hints of pink. When maintained low (about 3 inches/7 cm tall), it creates a dense, finely textured lawn.

The dark green blades of perennial ryegrass sprout from seed and grow quickly. Once established it...
