Canada Wild Rye is a fast-growing prairie grass and an excellent native nurse crop for prairie seedings. Seeded at a rate of two to three pounds per acre with a prairie seed mix, Elymus canadensis will mature in the first or second year while other prairie grasses and flowers are still developing. The beautiful curving seed heads resemble cultivated rye. Grows on practically any soil, including bare sand, gravel, and raw clay subsoil.
