Plants we’ll be working with that are able to take up hydrocarbons include:
Canada Wild Rye (Elymus canadensis) [can also take up Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbon (PAH)]
Western Wheatgrass (Pascopyrum smithii)
Plants grow best when other supportive plants are nearby.
Other seeds we’ll be planting alongside our hydrocarbon phytoremediators (depending on your location) include:
Black Eyed Susan
Smooth Blue Aster
Great Blanket Flower
