Erosion control

One of the blog readers over in Countryside wrote me last week, "Friday at Countryside (subdivision where my family lives) the homeowners will be planting about 500 erosion control plants at the front pond. The homeowners opted to plant plants rather than install riprap to stabilize the banks of the pond." I did not get there when anyone was doing anything, but saw some of the results.
They do seem to have a problem with a good section of the bank sliding into the pond.I hope their stabilization efforts work.

Do you know what species they planted, or plan to plant?
