Comprehensive Description

Long-Awned Woodland Grass is one of the more unusual woodland grasses that is not often described. It somewhat resembles one of the woodland Bromus spp. (Brome Grasses), but its spikelets are single-flowered. Both the lemmas and awns are unusually long. Because the foliage is quite attractive and persists through the summer, Long-Awned Woodland Grass should be cultivated more often. Other common names of this grass are False Brome and Bearded Short Husk.
