Blue Dune Lyme Grass
Elymus arenarius 'Blue Dune'
|Description||Striking silver-blue foliage is a standout in any landscape. Highly effective when paired with purple flowers or plants with maroon foliage. Produces wheat-colored plumes in summer. Foliage clumps spread vigorously by rhizomes; very useful for filling in large areas quickly and for erosion control. Very heat tolerant.|
|Light||Full sun, Partial sun|
|Watering||Water when top 2 inches of soil is dry.|
|Mature Size||Quickly forms clumps 2 ft. tall and wide; 3 ft. tall in bloom.|
|Care||Grows easily in a wide range of soils; less vigorous in dry, clay soils. Water regularly in first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Once established, reduce frequency; tolerates periodic dry spells. Space 2 to 3 ft. apart as groundcover; closer for faster coverage. May be cut back in late spring to rejuvenate foliage.|
