Grass is basically everywhere that you look. You can either choose to grow domestic grass, meaning grass that is native to your area, or grass that is exotic. The down falls of using exotic grass is that the grass can become invasive to other plant life. There are ten types of grass that are domestic to the United States. Each of these types are domestic to different areas in the U.S.
- Many of the commonly used ornamental grasses are exotic.
- These 10 North American grass species are suitable for a variety of growing conditions.
- Native species, especially those that are native to the region, fit in well with the local ecology and growing conditions.
“Many of the commonly used ornamental grasses are exotic — that is, coming from a country or region distant from where they are being used.”
