Prairie Junegrass (Koeleria macrantha) Seed Packet WW
Please select all options.
A lovely, fine-leaved, native tufted bunchgrass - and one of Willamette Wildlings' favorites. Fresh spring foliage emerges with a touch of blue. Silvery-green panicles (flower heads) form in late spring offering an attractive vertical element to your garden - and their open plumes lend a delightful airiness. As the panicles close and dry, they offer an attractive and more substantial presence. Bunchgrasses do not spread by runners - they remain in a “bunch” where the crown enlarges over time. UBC in British Columbia describes it as tidy grass that does not aggressively self-sow. Very drought tolerant once established.
