    Koeleria macrantha - Junegrass

    SKU: C25520



    One of the earliest maturing native grasses, it is also one of the shortest grasses often remaining under two feet tall. Junegrass produces lustrous creamy seed heads in early summer making this plant stand out in the garden. The foliage is also an attractive green-gray colour. Requiring very dry and sunny conditions, Koeleria macranthra makes an excellent companion for short wildflowers such as Prairie Smoke and Wild Lupine. A great choice for green roofs!
