My friend Loree over at Danger Garden does a lot of walking, driving, traveling. Well, a lot compared to me. During these excursions she keeps a look out for interesting gardens and landscapes. Some are noteworthy because they are cool or beautiful, but others fall into the "what were they thinking?" category.
These Miscanthus planted near intersections near my house fit into that WWTT bucket. Sure Miscanthus is a fairly wide grass, graceful and arching. Not appropriate for this space? Just prune them!
If you thought that first one was bad, this one will send you over the edge:
From a distance I thought it was a switch grass (Panicum) but with a different sort of inflorescence.
I wonder if anybody has figured out how to prune these into cube/rectangular shapes yet?
What were they thinking?
