Crested Dogstail (Cynosurus cristatus)

Ref: DOGSTAIL

Formerly a grazing grass, this compact, tufted perennial is found in abundance in sheep pastures. It is not aggressive and grows well late into the season when other grasses are giving up. It grows in most areas but is found naturally on dry soils. Even clays support this grass, and it is likely to find its way into most seed mixtures. It has good winter greenness but is inclined to produce wiry stems if left unmown or ungrazed.
