Abstract/Contents:Discusses the potential of ornamental grasses to invade turfgrass. Outlines a brief history of ornamental grass use in the United States, beginning with the Victorian period. Addresses concerns of 2010, focusing on Miscanthus sinensis (Chinese silver grass, Eulalia), M. sacchariflorus (Amur silver grass, silver banner grass), and Saccharum ravennae (hardy pampas grass, Ravenna grass). Also highlights the possible problems regarding the Pennisetum genus' presence in the United States, stating that "Pennisetum becomes a landscape maintenance problem when its seeds germinate and invade turf and other landscape areas. Seeds from shattered fountain grass flowers can reseed in gardens."
