Some plants such as Maiden grass have to be cut back around February before new growth. My friend Kristin cut her ornamental grass from her yard at the end of the season and brought it inside her home. She tied the bottom of the bunch with raffia and put it in a tall vase with sand and seashells. It's natural free flowing appearance softens the space.
The vase filled with bouquet of grass sits on top of a beautifully painted cabinet adding a tropical beachy feel to her foyer.
Have a great day!
