Grasses

Whether you're looking for the right kind of grass to put in the front yard, or a nice accent along your walkway, there is a University of Minnesota variety for your needs. Ornamental grasses are evaluated for winter survival, flowering time, self-seeding, invasiveness, and winter interest. In addition to cold hardiness, the University's turfgrass breeding program focuses on creating sustainable, environmentally friendly alternatives to intensive, high-maintenance varieties that are currently dominating the market.
