Calamagrostis canadensis

Blue-joint and Canada Reedgrass.

We currently do not grow this plant.

Blue Joint grows as a large creeping grass in wet places or meadows from Manitoba to New Mexico, Newfoundland to California. In California Blue-joint lives from about Tulare Co. north in the Sierras, and Mendocino county north in the coast ranges. This range is largely limited by rainfall.
