British garden designer Sarah Price added low-maintenance grasses to ornamental borders to create drama and height in a historic cottage garden in Oxfordshire. She used a simple, pared-down palette of sedum, salvias, origanum, erigeron, and Stipa gigantea to create structure, texture, and color all year. Piet Oudolf reflective.

Geum triflorum (Prairie Smoke) is one of the most stunning and longest lasting prairie perennials, with unmistakable feathery silver and pink seedheads in mid-spring. It is a soft, hairy plant growing typically to 16" tall with fern-like leaves. It prefers full sun and average to dry soil. It is drought tolerant once established, grows in sand, gravel and rock gardens. It spreads by rhizomes and can be naturalized to form an interesting ground cover.
