Except botanical descriptions of plants in the special literature (the agricultural technician, flowering terms, the native land, grades) in our opinion not enough attention is given to the shape of a plant, its architecture and variability during season. But without this the work of a landscape architect is complicated and frequently contains obvious errors, but they are not obvious at once. If we are talking about own garden where we can change compositions infinitely, but about an order, these errors can be always corrected. Certainly, such characteristics of plants are individual enough from the point of view of the author. We would like to share with you our many years experience in area of creation of decorative gardens and to try to give to dry encyclopedic descriptions of plants an art shade, to see a plant not only as a biological kind, but also as an architectural form with all merits and demerits. We begin these short reviews with Grass perennials as with the most changeable group (except trees and bushes).
In our collection today is more than 500 only biological kinds (except grades), BUT experience shows that it is possible to allocate a group of 50 kinds: with one prominent feature - decorative effect during all season. They are beautiful before flowering, perfectly well hold the form, «do not collapse". They can be used both in combinations, and in strip landings. If they are planted without any obvious landscape errors do they will never lose. Their weakness is early spring when the plant intensively grows, but also at this time some of them, for example young ferns give a unique picture. Throughout all season, up to approach of the first frosts, grass perennials will look it great in your garden. Many of these plants either are undeserved forgotten or have not received sufficient distribution yet. We specially don’t talk about botanical description and agricultural technician because special literature is rich with these details.
