HOW TO GROW

Sowing: Direct sow in early spring, pressing the seed into the surface of the soil and compacting the soil very firmly. Keep the soil lightly moist until germination.

Growing: Water seedlings regularly until they become established. This plant prefers dry soil that drains well, and tolerates drought. It also adapts well to various soil types such as sand and gravel. Though it grows best in rather poor soil, it tolerates rich soil if competition from other plants is not too strong. It has excellent resistance to heat and cold. In addition to being a low maintenance turf grass, this plant provides forage and cover for birds and other wildlife.

Seed Saving: At the end of the season, the seed heads will begin to ripen and turn white. Strip the fluffy seed heads from the stem. Separate the seed from the plant material. Store the seed in a cool, dry place.

As an ornamental grass, this beautiful native plant stands out wherever it is grows.

The genus name “Koeleria” honors German botanist Georg Ludwig Koehler, who specialized in native grasses.
