Blue pacific
Shore Juniper

I have no clue of all the zones. I don't really think so much of grass the needs cut all the time, but then again i don't know much about this, just trying to help the group out with some sugestions. They just mentioned grassy plants but anything that would help i'm sure they would go for.

I am leaning more towards swamp species. Salix ssp. Especially Sailx Integra "Hakaro Nishiki", anything in the Salix Family, Viburnum Nudum, Thuja Occidentalis, Ilex, Fothergilla Gardenii, Cornus Amomum "Cinderella", Cornus Stolonifera, also some Vaccinum ssp. (Special thanks to Horticopia)

PS No grasses came up on the search.
