Bottle-brush Grass

Bottle-brush Grass

Elymus hystrix 


This native woodland grass is aptly named "hystrix"  which is Greek for hedgehog.  The airy bottle-brush flower heads look attractive in dried flower arrangements.  Excellent plant for dry, shady areas. Provides interesting texture & food for birds in late summer.
