Idaho bent

Publication: Bull. Torrey Bot. Club 24(1): 42-43.

Origin: Native

selected vouchers: WTU

Notes: FNA24: "Agrostis idahoensis grows in western North America, from British Columbia to California and New Mexico, in alpine and subalpine meadows along wet seepage areas and bogs, and in wet openings with Sphagnum in coniferous forests. It was recently discovered in Chile and Argentina; it is not known whether it is native or introduced there (RĂºgolo de Agrasar and Molina 1997). Agrostis idahoensis is often confused with A. mertensii and dwarf forms of A. scabra, both of which tend to grow in better-drained habitats."
