Canada Wild Rye
This graceful looking native Rye grass produces long, nodding, showy wheat-like flowers with long spurs that turn golden as they mature. Culturally it performs best in a sand dune or shoreline situation which is often disturbed by wind but will tolerate other habitats as well. It also looks nice in dried flowers arrangements in the fall. The seeds are eaten by small birds.
