Reed Canarygrass

(Phalaris arundinacea)


Reed Canarygrass is a tall, cool-season, sod-forming grass. It can grow from 61 to 244 cm (24 to 96 in.) tall and is well adapted to poorly drained soils. It is also used for forage and erosion control in wet areas.

Seed should be drilled 0.6 to 1.9 cm (¼ to ½ in.) deep or broadcast and covered to the same depth. Seed loses viability in storage, so only recently harvested and tested seed should be used. Spring, late summer or fall plantings in areas with poor drainage are the most successful. Reed Canarygrass must be fertilized with a complete fertilizer at the time of seeding and top dressed with nitrogen during the growing season, or it will not produce. It should be grazed prior to seed formation.
