This is a beautiful species of grass! When in flower, the nodding clusters are purple to pale green, with many long, straight bristles; after flowering, the bristles frizz up. In parts of the West, this grass creates a beautiful carpet along roadsides and in waste areas! Great for planting in prairies and meadows!
