Danthonia intermedia Vasey[FNA25, HC, HC2]
timber oatgrass

Publication: Bull. Torrey Bot. Club 10: 52. 1883.

Origin: Native

selected vouchers: WTU

Notes: FNA25: "Danthonia intermedia grows in boreal and alpine meadows, open woods, and on rocky slopes and northern plains. Its range extends from Kamchatka, Russia, to North America, south along the cordillera, and east, through boreal and alpine regions, to Quebec and Newfoundland and Labrador. Its primarily cleistogamous reproduction has probably facilitated its establishment and spread through more boreal and alpine habitats than other members of the genus.

Tzvelev (1976) treats the American plants as Danthonia intermedia Vasey subsp. intermedia and the Russian plants, which have 2n = 18, as Danthonia intermedia subsp. riabuschinskii (Kom.) Tzvelev."
