Calamagrostis canadensis (Blue Joint Grass) gets its name from the blue-green foliage. This native is an adaptable cool season clumping grass commonly found in wet prairies and sedge meadows. Upright seed heads form in midsummer turning from a salmon pink to a pleasant golden brown in late summer and fall. This grass can tolerate seasonal standing water if you are looking to fill that wet spot.
