Tampa Bay area properties can have gorgeous ornamental grasses that are not considered turf grasses. There are a large number of ground covers that can make any Tampa Bay area property landscape more interesting. From true grasses to bamboos to sedges, let’s talk about ornamental grasses for Tampa Bay area properties.
Warning About Bamboos
We should note that if you choose bamboo varieties for your property, you should avoid bamboos that are naturally running and instead choose tropical clumping varieties. If you choose a running variety of bamboo, it can quickly grow out of hand and really upset your neighbors too!
There are several ornamental grasses to choose from that will do well in South Florida. Here are some to choose from:
- Tripsacum dactyloides
- Uniola paniculata
- Muhlenbergi capillaris
- Pennisetum setaceum
- Muhlenbergia dumosa
