How to care for local grasses |

The best native grasses can help turn a traditional lawn into a colorful, eco-friendly feature, create a natural meadow, or decorate your flower beds with fountains of foliage. Because they are perfectly adapted to your local conditions, these grasses are easy to grow, and once established, they will sail through the seasons with very little aftercare.

“The most important thing is to choose the right herbs for your particular conditions,” says Mark Richardson, director of horticulture at the New England Botanic Garden. One easy way to discover plants native to your local area is to enter your zip code into the National Wildlife Federation’s Native Plant Finder.
