Coast range melic. A loose, fountain-like bunchgrass with bright green leaves and arching flowering stems that rise above the foliage in spring. In flower plants reach 2-3’ tall with an equal spread. Plant in full sun or light shade in reasonably well-drained soils with occasional water. Plants will exhibit summer dormancy in dry gardens, but will quickly green up with the fall rains. Use in meadows, grassy borders and natural gardens. Hardy to 15F. Central and Southern California.
