Reed Canarygrass

Reed Canarygrass is a flood-tolerant, high-yielding, sod-forming grass which spreads by rhizomes. It can be harvested as pasture, silage, or hay and has good forage quality when cut or grazed in a timely fashion. However, it produces low-quality forage quickly if not harvested on time. It is slow to establish, has poor seedling vigor, and low forage yields in the seeding year. Once established, it has excellent winterhardiness, drought tolerance, and disease resistance. It is the only perennial grass that will tolerate standing water for more than 48 hours, making it invasive in wetland environments.
