Q.Best Ornamental Grasses For Nyc Terrace

Zone 10023 | foxginny added on April 17, 2021 | Answered

We live on the 9th floor of an apartment building fairly close to the Hudson River.(zone 7a-7b?) We have a long, narrow terrace facing southwest and would like to put a tall grass in a container or two at one end, which is 70 inches across. I would like to use a low, rectangular container for a modern look and to not take up much space. Winters can be fierce, both windy and cold. I am not a gardener, and would like something easy to plant in a pot and low maintenance. Which grasses do you recommend, and in what size/type of container? Thank you!
