Junegrass – Koeleria macrantha
A *cool season, fast-growing, and self-seeding bunch grass, this perennial has dense, silvery green, 1-3 ft tall spike-like seedheads and bright green to grey-green leaves. Starts growth very early in spring and turn tans by mid-summer, often ‘lighting up’ pathways along hikes and usually becoming dormant in the heat of summer. Easy to grow in dry to medium, very well-drained soils in full sun, thrives in rocky or gritty soils, good candidate for green roofs. Drought tolerant and pollution resistant.
*Note: cool season, or C3, grasses begin growing actively in late winter to early spring, flowering and setting seed in the spring to early summer
