A cool season grass native to the Western Plains, ricegrass shines in the desert-friendly garden, bunched in masses and intermingled with other prairie bunchgrasses. Its elegant sage green leaves turn ivory in the fall and are crowned by a cloud-like constellation of seed heads that capture sunlight and provide striking visual interest throughout the winter. High in nutritional value, it has been a prized food source among many indigenous peoples of the West.
