Meadow Foxtail (Alopecurus pratensis)

Ref: FOXTAIL

A tufted perennial which is widespread throughout the British Isles. It is commonly found in low lying areas, particularly in river meadows. It is nutritious and palatable to stock and is one of the first grasses to flower in the spring. In cases where hay making is possible, it makes a useful contribution to yields. It is a difficult species to produce seed from and this is reflected in the price (2,000,000 seeds per kg).
