Quakgrass508

Go back to weekly blog


This Quaking grass is a biennial and after flowering it dies down leaving its seeds to be blown by the wind to colonize new areas. Nothing is seen until about September to October when the new plants starts to grow. They look much like a light green Rye grass over the winter. I usually let some flower where they want to. If sprayed, with hairspray, before the seeds start to fall they provide excellent dried flowers.
