Abstract/Contents:"Not long ago, one would expect to see ornamental grasses grown primarily in the southern states, arid regions or in exotic gardens. Today, grasses have gained popularity with golf course superintendents in the entire United States for a variety of reasons and cost factors. Ornamental grasses grow faster, require less maintenance and are more tolerant to diseases, insect infestations and drought when compared to ornamental shrubs. Grasses are no longer used mainly as grass islands in bunkers, but have gained a wider variety of uses by today's superintendents."
