Ornamental Grasses for warm and cool seasons and wet and dry environments

September 24 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm

Colorado, being a prairie state, has an ideal environment to implement a wide variety of ornamental grasses into your landscape designs. In this presentation, Amy Lentz, CSU Horticulture Agent for Weld County, will cover various ornamental features and growth habits for several warm and cool season grasses for both wet and dry environments.

Amy Lentz is a Colorado State University Extension agent for horticulture, agriculture and small acreage management in Weld County where she works with residents and local farmers to address their questions and needs as they relate to land management, home horticulture or crop production. Prior working for Colorado State University, Amy worked as a research analyst for the University of Kentucky in the areas of fruit and vegetable research, cut flower production, nursery production and seed testing. She also worked as the supervisor of horticultural farming operations at Morehead State University in Eastern Kentucky, teaching students the fundamentals of floriculture, nursery production, orchard management, fruit and vegetable production and landscape management.
