CANARY GRASS Phalaris arundinacea L.
Canary Grass (Variety Reed most popular) is a cool season perennial that grows best on wet land. It is a sod forming grass that produces a coarse leafy grass of 2 to 8 feet in height. Spreads from roots and seeds and provides a dense root mat in soil.
I wonder if this would work in cob or straw bale buildings. The reason I’ve been wondering is because a neighbor / farmer has a bunch of tightly compressed bales. It sounds like it is fairly rot resistant and plentiful.
Would it be suitable for use in a straw bale house? I guess it would be a canary-reed-bale house wouldn’t it.
