Blue Dune Lyme Grass, Leymus arenarius 'Blue Dune'

Blue Dune Lyme Grass

 

Full Sun, Cool-season

This Lyme Grass is a cool-season grower that appears to take the summer heat in stride.  Its most striking feature is the silver/blue foliage.  It has a spreading growth habit and a very loose form.  A very unique ornamental grass for the garden.
This grass made it on the Top 10 visitor favorite list in 2008.  It bloomed starting in late May and kept the seed heads all season.  This is an active spreader by rhizomes, so it can be aggressive!
