Description

This bunchgrass grows 12-18" tall with dense leafy tufts, it is found throughout the mountains and coast ranges of California in both open and shaded areas. It is considered an "ice-cream plant" by range specialists because of its extreme palatability to live-stock. It prefers moist soils or at least soils with adequate subsurface moisture. Arid soils do not support this grass at all, typically the are best developed along the north coast of California.
