Anthoxanthum odoratum
Anthoxanthum odoratum
Sweet Vernalgrass
Small, clumping evergreen grass forms 7" tall tufts that have a sweet scent when walked upon. Silky green cylindrical panicles rise to 15" in early summer, but are not particularly showy. Useful edging for borders (especially when allowed to spill into paths) but will also take occasional light mowing. (Ornamental Grass,Groundcover)
