Mediterranean Brome (Bromus macrostachys) - Start Mediterranean Brome seeds for a fast-growing, lovely cool season ornamental grass. A synonymous botanical name is Bromus lanceolatus, and a second common name is Ornamental Brome grass. This variety of Bromegrass is often used for a bedding plant. As an annual, it grows quickly from ornamental grass seeds, and it has attractive flower panicles that have just a hint of purple, and they are dense and very wooly. The flower panicles are excellent for preserving and work nicely into dried arrangements. Mediterranean Bromegrass puts on an excellent display!
