Festuca obtusa (Nodding Fescue) Seeds
Not your Common Wild Grass !
Despite feedback from my neighbors, saying why do you want these interesting weeds, I let a few thousand seeds go on my barren, bad fill mound. I gave them miracle grow in a plugged style planting on the nasty hill. let me tell you, by itself, this plant has character . It truly nod, or bends with every stem and seed head. It forms a basal clump and the shoots follow in a month. Do not plant them together ! One here and there of you'll have a field of arching seed heads butting in on each. So one out one thousand or so popped. For the price I paid, I can re-read "Weeds of the Northeast "again, knowing I successfully naturalized this unique wild grass. Thank you!!
