Description

Blue Joint Grass is the PERFECT pond or lakeside grass

The blue joint grass is a species of the Poaceae family that has several distinct common names including bluejoint, marsh reedgrass, Canadian reedgrass, meadow pinegrass, and marsh pinegrass to name just a few. It has an extensive distribution in Canada and the United States with it being found in all 48 of the lower states and even Alaska in some form or another. The blue joint grass is a perennial species that is not sought after by most wildlife due to its lack of cover for protection and food source.

Blue Joint Grass can live in such distinct biomes as the tundra, the boreal forest, deciduous and temperate forests, tropical rainforests, and the list goes on

 
It blooms in the late Spring months, sometimes early in the Summer depending on the exact location, and produces attractive green-pink seeds that are occasionally used for various ornamental purposes. The plants can grow upwards of four feet in height and require at least partial, but preferably full sun exposure. The primary USDA zones listed for blue joint grass growth are zones 3-6, but it is typically found in a much broader range and distribution than that. This species of grass does not grow in too dense of a formation, with two to three feet of spacing between distinct, individual clumps of grass. The soil requirement for blue joint grass is moist, so an area with at least moderate rainfall would supply the most optimal growth conditions, along with full sunlight exposure.

 

Blue Joint Grass grows exponentially in areas that have been exposed to recent oil spills, making it a hardy plant that is capable of stabilizing the soil content in wet soils

 
One of its most common uses is that as a palatable food source for grazing livestock in an agricultural setting. This plant also has rhizomes that produce flowers of a purplish color. The plant also stands up well during the harsh winter. This plant grows best in wetland areas where the soil is wet or somewhat moist.
