Hello! Can you tell me the name of these grasses? It looks like Bunny Tail ... And is that Kangaroo Paw along the wall? Thank you!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Ornamental Grasses in the Landscape
Here grasses have replaced a typical American front lawn. This is an eco-friendly choice, as one of the biggest sources of non-point source pollution in the United States is our lawns (i.e. fertilizer runoff during a storm).
Mass planting. Simple planes or masses of plants can help bring balance and unity to homes with more than one architectural style.
