Moor for More Interest

Molinia caerulea cv. 'variegata' aka Moor grass

I love the ornamental grasses but my garden in front doesn't have enough sun to grow them.  It's also a small area that I don't want to overwhelm  so when I spotted these little beauties above and read that they only grow 2' tall , just had to have them.

Moor grass has a beautiful tassle that turns purple in Fall and is a great addition to the partly sunny/shady garden.  An added bonus also is that it is deer resistant.  Hope that includes those waskaly wabbits.
