Golden wood millet or Bowles’ Golden Grass, Milium effusum ‘Aureum’ is beautiful in early spring. First photo is from May 6, 2011when it is about 8″ tall and bright yellow. This is a cool season grass, and prefers cooler temperatures, it turns green later in the summer and grows best shaded from hot summer sun. I have it planted near my front walk, where it is shaded by annual cleome and monarda later in the summer.
Here it is on May 23, 2011 and is about 10″ tall. It loves the cool weather of spring 2011!
June 1, 2011 in flower.
