Which ornamental grasses work in a Japanese theme garden?

Ornamental Grass and Japanese Gardens

Japanese gardens are ideal for ornamental grass. Japanese gardening emphasizes plants and foliage and less attention on flowers. Ornamental grasses that work well in a Japanese garden can include Bamboo, Miscanthus, Japanese Blood Grass, and most any ornamental grass that has spiky foliage.

Ornamental grasses work well in a Japanese theme garden when accented with large carefully placed rocks and small pebbles or gravel.
