Upon receipt of your plants, unpack and unwrap the roots and mist with water. Plant within 24-48 hours. If you can not plant within this time frame, put your plants in a cool location (ex- basement, garage or cellar) and water the roots daily. Cover them back up with the plastic so they will not dry out until you can plant them. After planted, water every evening after the sun goes down for 5 days.

Blue joint grass is perennial and has tufted or dense culms that stand between 2 and 5 feet tall.
The grass is also known as Bluejoint or Bluejoint Reedgrass. In some areas, blue joint grass looks much like bunchgrass. In areas where the grass grows often, the plant forms a sod with a coarse consistency. Blue joint grass produces both sterile and fertile shoots, and the culms are beige or light green. There are up to 10 alternating leaves along every culm and the blades are between 4 and 12 inches long. The top and bottom of the blades are light to medium green but can also be bluish-green.
Blue joint grass prefers partial or full sun and grows best in moist or wet soil. This grass blooms in the summer, whether the season is especially cool or warm, depending on the region where you live.
Blue joint grass can adapt to several soil types, including silt, clay, and sand, or a combination of these conditions.
The grass has a varied pH tolerance and it can tolerate standing water, as long as the water doesn't persist through the entire growing season. Blue joint grass is especially hardy in the winter and it may spread quickly in some regions.
Blue joint grass grows in the northern area of Illinois but doesn't thrive well in the southern region of the state. The grass needs a wet or moist prairie to grow and also grows in fens, marshes, sedge meadows, and bogs. The grass thrives well in hardiness zones 3-9. Harvesting should only occur once a year since unfertilized blue joint grass can't handle excessive harvests or grazing. Blue joint grass makes a beautiful yard plant, especially as part of a small garden filled with ornamental grasses and small flowers to add curb appeal to a property.
