Description

Danthonia californica is a clumping erect perennial bunch grass with stems approaching a meter (3 feet) in height at maximum. The leaves are flat and short and may be hairy or hairless. The inflorescence holds one or more spikelets, each spikelet holding up to eight florets. This grass grows best in moist areas, generally in thin forests and meadows. Typical native grass associates in the far western North American coastal prairies are Festuca idahoensis, Deschampsia caespitosa, and Nassella pulchra.(Wikipedia) Photo Credit: Matt Lavin – originally uploaded to Flickr as Danthonia californica, CC BY-SA 2.0.
