As you’ll see from the pictures here on GardenPlantsOnline, Carex Buchanni can either be trimmed to grow upwards into a fountain of golden browns, or trained to grow outwards and form a traditional rounded bush. Whatever shape you choose, you’ll be giving your garden the feel of a wild prairie or hot Mediterranean oasis.
Ornamental Grasses are chosen for their decorative qualities and whether used indoors or outdoors, they can bring a striking diversity to your garden. From round shrubs to tall walls of quivering spikes, ornamental grasses bring new shapes and textures that will contrast against the twisted roots of trees and the blooms of traditional plants and flowers. They are also becoming increasingly popular due to their hardiness against the British weather and their ability to hold their colour through autumn and winter.
