Hierochloe odorata (Sweetgrass) is a native perennial grass that is so hardy it can grow in the Arctic Circle. With an upright form, it features small spikelets of bronze seedheads. Preferring a full sun location in average to moist soil, it makes a nice addition to a naturalized garden or prairie-style planting. Sweetgrass is considered sacred by many indigenous people in North America.
