Plant Category: Grass-like
An artificial classification that groups plants together by their resemblance to true grasses. As with the grasses (excluding Bamboo), they are all herbaceous monocotyledonous plants with narrow strap shaped leaves. They are often used interchangeably with grasses in the landscape and many horticultural references and nursery catalogs lump them all together as “Ornamental Grasses”. Also see our Bog Plant Page for more information.
