Kentucky Color: A Lavender Beauty
By Billy Joe Fudge
Late Spring is a time to get up close and personal with this Great Wooded South, Lavender Beauty. As we travel the highways and byways headed to far away destinations in search of vistas and villas with views we may be breezing by a bounty of breathtaking beauty just across the ditch line.
Orchard Grass is presently in heavy bloom and in pure stands their lavender haze waving in the wind rivals the grandeur of blue haze found in pure stands of our very own official state grass, Kentucky Bluegrass.
Orchard Grass is a great pasture and hay producing grass which for all practical concerns grows well in partial shade. That is why it made and makes such a great ground cover beneath fruit trees. One would suppose that is where it picked up its name.
