CALAMAGROSTIS canadensis (Bluejoint Grass) is a mid-sized to tall native grass useful for wetland restoration and shoreline and streambank stabilization. Creeping underground shoots (rhizomes) improve the plants’ ability to bind soil, especially along streams and waterways. This species provides forage for bison, elk, and deer, as well as food and habitat for small mammals, waterfowl, birds, and bears.
A NATIVE, Naturally! grass, it prefers average, moist to wet soil in full sun to part sun.
