fringed brome

Publication: Sp. Pl. 1: 76-77 1753.

Origin: Native

selected vouchers: WTU

Notes: FNA24: "Bromus ciliatus grows in damp meadows, thickets, woods, and stream banks across almost all of northern North America except the high arctic, extending further south mainly through the western United States to Mexico. Some taxonomists have named plants with different degrees of sheath pubescence as different forms. Because the variation is continuous, such differences are not formally recognized in this treatment."
