Detailed Description for Elymus

Elymus virginicus or Virginia wild rye is a versatile shade tolerant cool season grass which grows just over 3' tall and offers great perennial competition against Japanese stiltgrass. The slightly drooping seed heads of Virginia wild rye are tan in color and persist long into winter.  Virginia wild rye grows well in a range of soil from clay to loamy. When grown in mass, it gives a nice savannah style aesthetic quality to the eastern woodlands.
