Blue Joint Grass is the most frequent grass associate of sedges and is a valuable wetlands restoration species! It is a tough grass that provides soil stability in wet areas and is one of the first plants to reestablish on sites of recent oil spills! This species stands up well in winter, grows 3 to 5 feet tall, and is a palatable food plant for grazing animals.
