Riverbank Wild Rye


Riverbank wild rye is a gorgeous, perennial, native North American ornamental grass species. It thrives in the moderate USDA plant hardiness zones. It is a stunning water garden specimen that is tall and charming, seeming to dance with every breeze.


Riverbank wild rye grows in nature in rich forest glades, near open prairie streams, along river banks, in saltwater marshes and freshwater swamps, and in slow-draining ditches that stay full of standing water. It asks for a wet location in full sunshine or a partially sunny area.


Other Common Names for Riverbank Wild Rye


Some gardeners refer to this ornamental grass by several other names, such as:


  •      Eastern Wild Rye
  •      Eastern Wild-rye
  •      Terrell Grass
  •      Virginia Wildrye

The Graceful Good Looks of Riverbank Wild Rye


This wild grass grows in clumps of one foot or more. The plants shoot up from under the water and reach as high as four to five feet. The clumps develop underground roots that spread about three feet wide. The spikes are bright green, lance-shaped, with rounded tips.


The flowers are charming--feathery, golden tan, and have a wheat-like appearance. The plant is self-seeding and will reproduce and form colonies season after season.
