Description from Possibility Place: Canadian Wild Rye is one of those grasses that grows in a way that may not be the most beautiful, but it is certainly effective, if not graceful. The seed heads resemble those of the domestic rye and are very noticeable at a distance. The blades are wide and slightly silver in color. It can reach heights of 4 feet, so it a little on the big side. It is a great stabilization plant for slopes, ditches and other areas that require a thick root system. It grows quickly and can seed in its first year, adding to its usefulness in restoration.
