Enjoy year-round color with Blue Lyme Grass or Leymus arenarius 'Blue Dune’. Narrow foliage is a silvery blue that coordinates well with companion plants with purple or blue flowers. Blue Lyme Grass is cold and heat tolerant, so it will look stunning all year, but it is particularly good at adding color to a winter landscape. Flower plumes emerge in late summer and add some extra texture.

Blue Lyme Grass adds unique color and texture to a space and works well as a ground cover. Include this grass near the back of a mixed bed, or use it along a walkway or to frame a mailbox. Plant it on an embankment to prevent soil erosion and trim the foliage to feature in flower arrangements. Deer and rabbits leave the foliage alone, so Blue Lyme Grass is a good pick if you have struggled with foraging animals visiting your yard. This ornamental grass is also salt resistant.

Blue Lyme Grass Care

This ornamental grass is adaptable, but expect the best results when planted in full sun and fertile, moist, well-drained soil. New plants need consistent water, but established plants often only need water during a dry period.

Cut foliage back in late spring to encourage more vigorous new growth. Divide the clumps as needed in mid-spring or early fall.

Blue Lyme Grass Spacing

Blue Lyme Grass is a large ornamental grass that stands 2 to 4 feet tall and 2 to 3 feet wide. This clump-forming plant quickly spreads, so space plants at least 2 to 3 feet apart, and cull wandering rhizomes as needed.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
