Description from Prairie Moon Nursery: A great choice to combat invasive Reed Canary Grass near water’s edge. Cord Grass is a warm season grass; it actively grows during the summer when soil temperatures are warm. Cord Grass prefers full to partial sun and wet to medium soil moisture. It thrives in a fertile loam, but can adapt to different soils if there is ample moisture. Typical habitats of this species include wet prairies, prairie swales, swamps, and marshes. Cord Grass is aggressive and spreads by rhizomes so therefore may not be suitable for small landscape plantings.
