The use of ornamental grasses in urban landscaping is currently one of the promising areas. However, modern assortment of this plants group often includes a poorly resistant or insufficiently decorative (when grown in the conditions of Central Russia) set of species and cultivars. The paper presents some resistant species and cultivars of ornamental grasses, belonging to Poaceae family, which are promising for mass urban landscaping in the conditions of Central Russia. The paper also lists the characteristics of plants development in culture conditions. In addition, there are variants proposed for using ornamental cereals in urban landscaping.
