Buy Native Oakey Wheat Grass Seeds – Elymus scaber

Wheat Grass grows in all Australian states except the Northern Territory, mostly in areas with cold winters. In mature stands, wheat grass often forms only a small percentage of the sward probably owing to its high palatability at certain times of the year. Habitats where it grows are plains grasslands, redgum woodland, and dry sclerophyll forests.

The leaves are narrow, rough along the edges and have a half-twist. It grows from 30-100 cm high and flowers from late spring to summer. The seedheads are quite long (up to 1.5 m) and can become lax and fall over.

We provide the best quality all year round, they are 100% Australian grown, produced and packaged.

Sowing Wheat Grass

Seeds need approximately 7 to 10 days to germinate depending on soil conditions and sowing depth. The seed is relatively large, and a finely cultivated seedbed is considered unnecessary.

Ideal conditions

We recommend sowing in autumn. However, germination of this species in the field can be opportunistic.


You can plant this seed with awns with a direct-drilling using a cone-seeder, and by hand sowing into a cultivated seedbed. You could also plant cleaned seed using conventional seed boxes suitable for ryegrass, fescue, etc.
