Hi. I was reading information here on how to divide and grow ornamental grasses and notice they talk about evergreen varieties (that don't die off completely in the winter). Does anyone know the names of any of these or anything else about them. I had a post before about looking for a landscape idea for in front of my house (need something large and not deciduous). Is this something I should check into???? I am in zone 5 with full afternoon sun. ANY help will be great! THANKS [Smile] [wayey]

My Blue Festuca stays nice all year round. It turns more green in color during the winter & the blue color seems to come on in the spring & stay till winter hits. It grows in the most beautiful round tufts & is my favorite grass to grow. It takes almost no care also. Here is some info on it: Blue Festuca
