Spartina pectinata

Common name: Cord Grass

Native plant

Cord grass is another of those biter grasses and will cut the pants right off of you if you walk through a clump wearing low quality trousers. Aside from that drawback, this grass is a winner for wet sites in open and disturbed areas as well as moist prairies. Tough as a coffin nail, as they say, invading our gravel drive here at the nursery and corn field edges with moist soil. Good fall color and interesting seed heads also lend a touch of ornamentality to it as well.
