    Great Basin Wildrye (Leymus cinereus) is a very tall growing, native, cool season grass. It blooms in late spring with long spikes of tan flowers held straight-up over stunning blue foliage. Late spring blooms are a valuable attribute, as most other large native grasses are warm season growers that flower much later in the summer and fall. The tan-and-blue grass is a perfect addition to sophisticated grass plantings, and an excellent companion for later blooming perennials.
