Black Wave

Black Wave Wheat has fierce black awns (spiky, grass-like stickers that burst off the seed head), on beautifully haunting, waving foliage with long upright plumes. A daring backdrop to a seasonal bed or a striking, structural thriller in a large pot.

We bet you haven’t spent a whole lot of time thinking about growing wheat, but this grass-like grain is much more than a crop. Their seed heads look like tiny woven challah bread, add texture and an airy feel to your garden, and a breezy, hippy vibe to your bouquets.

Includes three young plants, grown in 2.5” diameter pots

Growing Info
How to Plant Dig a hole twice the size of the root ball. Fill a little bit of the loose dirt back into the hole and tuck your plant in so the base of the stem is even with the top of the hole. Now fill in the rest of the soil around the roots, give the soft ground around the base of your new plant friend a few solid pats to compress the soil onto the roots, and a long, gentle drink of water
Where to Plant Find a place that gets a decent amount of sun, with well-draining soil
When to Plant Plant outside in the late spring, once the soil has warmed up. Avoid the heat of the day when planting — plant in the early morning, late afternoon, or by the light of the moon
When to Expect Blooms Late-summer through frost
Care Instructions Water regularly until they get established, and then give them extra water during dry spells.
Extra Credit Dried stems look amazing as a big, full bunch - perfect for a fall display
