Virginia Wild Rye

Elymus virginicus

Similar to Canada Wild Rye, this graceful grass grows in full sun or moderate shade and is a great addition to landscape borders. Excellent for stabilizing disturbed soils in woodland situations, the plants grow in almost any soil and does particularly well in slightly moist soils along woodland streams and floodplains. Excellent for wooded openings and forest edges, especially on cooler north and east-facing forest edges. Reseeds readily, so take care to prevent unwanted spreading.

Easy-to-grow
Great in meadow plantings or as feature grass
Good cut or dried grass
