Bill Maitland from Ohio e mailed me with a query about Grasses in Japanese gardens. Ornamental grasses are perfect for Japanese gardens, as you know doubt know flowers are not so important in Japanese gardens but grasses, plants and trees are. Ornamental grasses that are well suited to Japanese gardening are : Japanese blood grass, Bamboo, Miscanthus to name but 3.
A common characteristic or ornamental grasses are it’s spiky foilage. In my Japanese gardens photo gallery there are some beautiful examples of ornamnental grasses in tandem with sand, gravel and pebbles all working in tandem to create eye catchingly creative Japanese gardens.
