Balcony containers

Can anyone recommended grasses and sedges to plant in a container.   It will be on a south facing balcony with will get the sun and the wind.   I already have Erigeron Karvinskianus which I would like to plant in the container as well.

    Hello Jane, I'm assuming that you want smaller grasses? Festuca glauca is a pretty blue grass that would go well with the Erigeron and its daisy flowers. There is a group of Hakonechloas that would be worth looking at too for varying colours.

  • Thank you.  I had thought of something mid sized that would be a bit higher and architectural.   Any ideas? Thank you
