Native Plant Alternatives to Festuca rubra (Red Fescue)

Festuca rubra (Red Fescue) is listed in the Invasive Plant Atlas of the United States. The federal government has estimated that nearly 25 percent of the 20,000 plant species native to North America are at risk of extinction, many of these through habitat loss. You can help reverse this trend by planting great native plants in your garden.

Great Ornamental Grasses for your Winter Garden

While the flowerheads of late-season grasses are stunning in the fall, they continue to sparkle in winter. When frost catches their plumes and spikes and the sun glints through them, you will get great pleasure.
