About Leymus: Most species are known to be invasive, which can be useful when needing something for erosion control. It colonizes effectively, although in the garden it’s best to plant in a deep, bottomless, plastic container to keep it in check. It’s showy enough to be used as an accent where it can provide a contrast whether in the garden, near water features or next to boulders. Tolerates coastal winds and salt.
