This Virginia-native wild Rye is similar to the Canadian variety. Graceful and tall, it mixes well with taller woodland flowers, and presents a lovely border for wooded openings and forest edges. Grows easily in almost any soil, and is an excellent choice if you are seeking to attract birds to your garden or prairie.
