Small garden designs without grass In my experience there are few grasses that may grasp up to the drought-deluge cycle of a plains summer, however Indian grass is one of them. A native to tall-grass prairies, it is steadily found along big bluestem and switchgrass, residing on slopes and in dry soils in full solar, carpeting the landscape with overdue-summer season seed heads & autumn swaths of orange, pink and gold. Of all the tall grasses, that is the one I'd most counsel. Bring whispers of prairie winds to your garden with this swaying local grass that stands tall all winter.
