Bottlebrush Grass, Hystrix patula

A native woodland prairie grass that will thrive in moderate shade. The seedhead resembling a bottle brush could be confused with Virginia Wild Rye when first observed, but for the spaces between the flowers and the outward direction where they point. It enjoys medium to dry well-drained soils and grows 3'- 5' tall.
