Finding the Right Plants Can Be Tricky
That’s where our Plants for Green Infrastructure chart can help.
We’ve selected typical green infrastructure features in use today, and noted grasses, sedges, and rushes that should perform well in those growing environments. If you’re not familiar with these features, see descriptions here. The GI field is constantly changing and there may be other grasses and sedges that will work, but this is a great starting point for narrowing down choices.
Why Plants for Green Infrastructure?
Green infrastructure (GI) uses natural features, including grasses and sedges, to manage stormwater. A great example is the rain garden below. It is designed to allow stormwater to slowly infiltrate into the ground—rather than head straight to a culvert or a river.
Grasses, sedges, and a multitude of other plants play a significant role in creating cleaner, healthier places to live. They also hold a key to broader industry trends: low-maintenance landscaping. problem-solving with plants, and planting with a purpose beyond the visual.
