Grasses or ornamental grasses are increasingly used in contemporany arrangements, both in the composition of lawns and as solitary plants, group, masifs or curbs. The present study was conducted to evaluate the behavior of some decorative grass species/cultivars: Carex morrowii ΄Snowline΄, Carex morowii ΄Ice Dance΄, Festuca glauca, Koeleria glauca, Miscanthus sinensism ΄Variegatus΄, Pennisetum alopecuroides ΄Hameln΄, Pennisetum setaceum ΄Rubrum΄, in different areas of Pitesti. Observations and determinations were made on: biological characteristics, ability to multiply, aesthetic qualities, growing and requirements, winter hardiness, pruning effects, correlated with the variation of everage annual temperatures (°C) and average annual rainfall (mm/month) in 2 year of reporting, 2019 and 2020. Ways have been proposed to use the ornamental grasses studied in the landscape arrangements and the importance of their incorporation in the green spaces, for ecosystem offers: restoring the ecological balance, capitalizing on natural resources and developing biodiversity.
