Key Features:

  • Ornamental Appeal: The arching foliage and seed heads of Foxtail Barley create a graceful, fountain-like effect, making it a focal point in landscapes and gardens.

  • Seasonal Interest: Foxtail Barley transitions through different colors and textures throughout the seasons, from green foliage to golden seed heads that persist into winter.
  • Low Maintenance: Foxtail Barley is easy to grow and requires minimal care, making it a versatile choice for both experienced gardeners and beginners.

Planting Instructions:

  1. Timing: Sow Foxtail Barley seeds in early spring after the last frost date or in late summer for fall planting.

  2. Soil Preparation: Choose well-draining, sandy or loamy soil with a neutral to slightly alkaline pH. Incorporate organic matter to improve soil texture and fertility.

  3. Sowing: Scatter Foxtail Barley seeds evenly over prepared soil and lightly press them into the soil surface. Water gently to settle the seeds.

  4. Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist until seeds germinate. Once established, water sparingly as Foxtail Barley is drought tolerant.

  5. Spacing: Space Foxtail Barley plants 12-18 inches apart to allow for proper growth and development.

Growing Conditions:

  1. Sunlight: Foxtail Barley thrives in full sun but can tolerate partial shade. Provide at least 6 hours of direct sunlight daily for optimal growth and seed head formation.

  2. Watering: Water young Foxtail Barley plants regularly to establish roots. Once established, water deeply but infrequently, allowing the soil to dry between waterings.

  3. Soil: Well-draining soil is essential for Foxtail Barley. Avoid waterlogged conditions, as they can lead to root rot.

Care Tips:

  • Pruning: Foxtail Barley generally does not require pruning. Remove any dead or damaged foliage to maintain a neat appearance.
  • Fertilizing: Foxtail Barley is not heavy feeders. A balanced fertilizer can be applied in spring if growth appears stunted or foliage lacks vigor.
  • Propagation: Foxtail Barley can self-seed and spread in favorable conditions. Remove excess seedlings to control growth and prevent overcrowding.
