Elymus magellanicus

Elymus

Elymus magellanicus full sun

The color of sky and sea, Elymus’s light blue glaucous blades gain intensity as the plant matures and assumes its delightful skirtlike habit. Older leaves fall outward to cover the base, revealing the new, upright central growth.

A designer’s dream, Wheat Grass holds its form without the distraction of conspicuous flowers, and is unparalleled in a container or as a specimen for the mixed border against a drift of green Carex tumulicola. Happiest in coastal areas, this extraordinary blue grass appreciates well drained soil, and light shade in hot climates.

Size: 15" high x 18" wide; hardy to zone 6.
