Gardening Quiz - Ferns and Grasses - Ornamental Grasses (Questions)

In gardening circles the word 'grasses' is used loosely to describe a number of families of grass-like plants including Cyperaceae (sedges) and Juncaceae (rushes). For the purposes of this quiz we have not included these genera because most people have no suitable marshy areas in which to grow them. The quiz contains representatives of 10 different families in order to give you a flavour for what is available.
