Notes: FNA24: "Anthoxanthum odoratum is native to southern Europe. In the Flora, region it grows in meadows, pastures, grassy beaches, old hay fields, waste places, dense shade or as a weed in lawns.... In southern British Columbia, it is rapidly invading the moss-covered bedrock of coastal bluffs, and will soon exclude many native species."
