Everwilde Farms - 1000 Rice Cut Grass Native Grass Seeds - Gold Vault Jumbo Bulk Seed Packet

This native plant has a rough, sharp quality because of tiny barbs on the underside of each leaf; in addition to sticking to clothes or fur, these barbs can give painful scratches to exposed skin. The seeds resemble grains of rice, explaining the common name. A wetland plant, it most often thrives near streams or ponds or in marshy ground. The genus name “Leersia” honors Johann Daniel Leers, an 18th century German botanist. The species name “oryzoides” comes from the Latin word for “rice,” referring to the rice-like seeds.
