Festuca californica is a clumping perennial bunch grass, without rhizomes, that grows in greenish gray tufts. It reaches anywhere from 1.5 to 4.5 feet (0.46-1.37 m) in height, and 1.5 to 3.5 feet (0.46-1.07 m) in width. The green-gray leaves are narrow, and can reach 2 feet (0.61 m) long. The inflorescence, on stems reaching up to 6 feet (180 cm), holds spikelets, which are each 1 to 2 centimeters long. The flowers are in large open sprays, in the spring and summer. The plant reproduces from seed and from buds located at the base of the clump. (Wikipedia) Photo Credit: Stickpen – Own work, Public Domain.
