Berlin (Germany), October 16, 2023: German digital botany software company Laubwerk announces Plant Kit 20: Temperate Ornamental Grasses. Laubwerk Plant Kits are collections of beautiful, render-ready 3D plants explicitly created for architects, garden and landscape designers, and CG and VFX artists.

The new Plant Kit 20 is a collection of ten ornamental grass species and cultivars that are perfect for gardens and parks. These versatile plants are commonly planted in temperate regions around the world.

This exciting new plant selection ranges from compact showy grasses, such as black lilyturf 'Niger', to 'Elijah Blue', one of the best and most colorful of all blue fescue varieties. It also features the fluffy dwarf pampas grass and large grasses such as the feather reed grass 'Karl Foerster', as well common species such as blue grama and quaking grass. It's a perfect kit for adding structure and unprecedented detail to any flower bed or planter.

Buy now for an amazing deal! Customers who buy this pre-release version now will get the full Kit 20 free when it is released, including all the Kit 20 plant seasons. Once the full set of seasons have been added, the pre-release price will not be available any more. If you buy now, you get the full kit at half the price!

Dan Stone, director of operations at The Archilime Academy, states: "We'd been looking recently to expand our ornamental grasses and realistic flower asset libraries. The new plant kits from Laubwerk have come around at just the right time. As longtime fans of their other plant kits, we are super excited to see Laubwerk offer such high-quality vegetation assets for smaller scales. We can't wait to add them to our V-Ray for SketchUp scenes. Thanks, Laubwerk team!"
