Elymus hysterix BOTTLEBRUSH GRASS stands with its bottlebrush plumes 1 to 2 feet above the foliage, adding valuable interest to shade gardens. Olive green leaf blades are less than 1/2 in. wide, and grow in dense clumps. Grows best in a moist and fertile, shaded place but will tolerate shaded sites that are on the dry side. Blooms in early summer remaining ornamental to fall. Once established this U.S. East Coast native self sows rendering it useful when planted in informal settings and at the deciduous woodland edge.
