INFORMATION --- CANARY GRASS Phalaris arundinacea
Canary Grass (Variety Reed most popular) is a cool season perennial that
grows best on wet land. It is a sod forming grass that produces a
coarse leafy grass of 2 to 8 feet in height. Spreads from roots and
seeds and provides a dense root mat in soil. Native to Europe and
the United States, it was first used as forage in the US around
1835. Reed Canary grass is a natural wetland plant and will
grow in low, wet areas where clovers and other grasses fail.
Nitrogen is a key factor in proper growth of this plant. Used for
forage grazing, hay and silage production.
Canary grass is considered an INVASIVE SPECIES when planted in
marsh areas for wildlife. Avoid use in areas where this is NOT
an already established crop for pasture use. It should be used
only for pasture purposes in areas where it is already found, and
NOT for use in wildlife areas. Read links below concerning use
and invasive risks:
INVASIVE PLANT RISKS & CONTROL:
CROP USE: (Grazing Pasture / Industrial Crops)
Use in Northern states such as Wisconsin, Ohio, Michigan, Minnesota,
Illinois, Indiana through to Oregon / Washington should be carefully
evaluated. It is a problem species in these and other states
in low lying wet areas due to its invasive growth and replacement of
native species. While it is considered invasive and thus
harmful to the local ecology, ducks and geese do tend to use it for
nesting purposes in wet areas.
Canary Grass is extremely tolerant of flooding and when used
on poorly drained soils.
