Smooth Stalked Meadow Grass (Poa pratensis)


This perennial has creeping rhizomes and is particularly drought resistant. It can be found readily throughout the UK, particularly on lighter soils. It should not be late sown in the autumn as it is slow to establish. It is early to grow in the spring and once topped or cut it tends not to re-flower so aftermath growth is leafy (3,000,000 seeds per kg).

Smooth Stalked Meadow Grass

Found throughout the UK in meadows and traditional pastures. It is said to be one of the greenest grasses found growing in the early spring, and is an indicator of land that is well drained and in good heart. The species itself is palatable, and nutritional to livestock, often called one of the traditional 'sweet grasses'.
