BARNYARD GRASS - ECHINOCHOLA CRUSGALLI

Barnyard Sedge
Barnyard Sedge is a grass and has a Hardy Planting Zone between 3 - 8 making it a durable choice. Barnyard Sedge (grass) grows quickly, especially in the summer. It also succeeds near bodies of water such as lakes or ponds, and thrives in a moist environment with limited soil requirements. Although it prefers a warmer area, it can survive in almost any climate. This grass has a solid stem and the blades are green. The blades are also fairly thin, flat and rough, and are wider at the base and thinner at the top with a small purplish vein. At the base, stems can be reddish and begin to grow horizontally at first. Blade length also varies, ranging from under one meter to slightly more than a meter at its longest or mature height (about 3-5 feet at maturity). The roots are fairly short. The sedge will flower in summer and fall seasons, producing tiny red or purple bristly flowers. Thus, it is an annual plant. Additionally, the small flowers will fade as they age, and can produce 35,000 to 40,000 new seeds. Ultimately, this plant stays resilient when it receives plenty of water and a bit of sunlight, and can be a good landscaping choice to use near fence lines and as a filler for barren areas. Barnyard Grass is also called cockspur as well. This plant likes to have moist soil & does well in partial shade to full sun. Although, it does like soils rich in nutrients. One great benefit of this plant is that it is insect resistant. At full maturity, this grass will reach up six feet tall and three inches in width. Birds are attracted to native grasses and obtain seeds from it, and then scatter them. It will have a natural look when planted in lawns and gardens.
