Elymus (Leymus) triticoides

creeping wild rye

Native perennial grass that spreads by creeping rhizomes to form a dense colony. Blades have a bluish cast and grow 2 - 4 ft. tall. The flowers are narrow spikes 4 to 6 inches long on tall stems that emerge green and mature to a wheat color. Tolerates a wide range of conditions, but prefers moist, fertile soils in full sun to light shade. Does well in heavy clay soils. An excellent choice for erosion control. May be too invasive for small gardens or mixed borders. Deer resistant.
