Winter Grass is one plant that can add color, texture and interest to support a year-round garden. When you think about planting your perennial garden in this northwest climate, consider plants like the Winter Grass, so that whatever the season, your garden can dazzle the observer. One of the winter interest grasses we use is Calamagrostis acutiflorum “Overdam”. It in fact is useful in all four seasons, giving you more benefit for your dollars.

At Seattle Children’s Hospital, we have designed many ways to generate year round attention and engagement in the beauty of our grounds. Watch for ongoing posts for tips.
