‘Blue Dune Lyme’ is an attractive plant that will quickly fill in a large area; spreads by rhizomes and makes an excellent ground cover.

This low maintenance grass needs only occasional watering once it is established. Cut back the upright spiky flowers for a new flush of attractive growth, which looks good well into winter.
