Low Priced, Fast Growing Elymus Riparius- Riverbank Wild Rye


This East Coast native has dark green foliage that is coarse and porous with yellow flowers and rather inconspicuous brown seeds. It is part of the grass family, and its genus is wildrye. Considered to be a perennial, it has a grass-like appearance with rye looking stems. It grows in the form of bunches with an erect shape. It has a moderate growth rate and reaches its maximum height ranging from two feet to four or four and a half feet well before its maturity at 20 years. Not considered to be a low growing grass, it has a reduced lifespan.
Along the Atlantic Coast, the Northcentral and Northeastern portion of North America, the Midwest and the Eastern Mountains it is mainly a wetland plant but may occur in non-wetlands. In the Great Plains region, it is equally a wetland and non-wetland plant. Its root depth reaches a minimum of 10 inches. It is quite tolerant of shade and can handle cold temperatures reaching as low as -33 degrees Fahrenheit.


Affordable Elymus Riparius-Riverbank Wild Rye For Every Landscape

It grows in soil that is sandy, loamy, clay-like or organic. It has a low drought tolerance, and its water use is high. While it is not fire resistant, it does display a high understanding of fire. The Riverbank Wild Rye tends to need, and use, a lot of moisture. To thrive, it requires a minimum of 100 days that are frost-free.
It blooms in midsummer and produces seeds starting in the summer and ending in the fall. Propagation does not occur with cuttings, sod, tubers, sprigs, bulbs, containers or bare root. It only reproduces using its seed. It produces vigorous seedlings and does not have a spread rate for its vegetation. Its active growth period takes place in the spring and summer and experiences a slow regrowth rate after harvest.


While this is not a toxic plant, it is not palatable for human consumption. Riverbank Wild Rye is essential as a component in streambank rehabilitation and, as a fresh season grass, is good at controlling erosion in moist areas along streams and riverbanks.

Elymus Riparius- Riverbank Wild Rye

Riverbank Wild Rye 

Riverbank wild rye (Elymus riparius) is a tall, perennial bunch grass native to the greater eastern half of the United States. This wild grass reaches a mature height of around five feet at summer's end, producing long, slender, dark green leaves and bushy seed heads. It thrives in zones 3-9 with little or no maintenance when placed in an optimal environment, with the bulk of its growth occurring from late spring to early autumn.

 Riverbank wild rye requires moist soil with a sandy or clay base and partial to full shade. In nature, it's almost exclusively found along marshes or riverbanks within woodland areas. For this reason, Riverbank wild rye is an excellent option for erosion control, land reclamation, and soil improvement. It produces robust seeds with full reseeding capability, and so establishes itself well. 

 This graceful plant offers the domestic garden several benefits. Use it in areas that erosion has impacted, where its fibrous root system can help provide stability. In addition to its bio-remediation capabilities, Riverbank wild rye creates a lovely, breezy border along patios or ponds. Its height and seed heads provide a backyard wildlife habitat for birds and other small creatures, but Riverbank wild rye has the dual benefit of being deer-resistant as well.
