Yellow Oatgrass

Yellow Oatgrass is a perennial grass of medium height. It is loosely tufted with soft leaves and finely branched heads. These heads turn yellow when the seed ripens in early July, this is where the name comes from.




Yellow oatgrass can be found in hay meadows, pastures, banks and roadsides. This species is quite drought resistant and can be found on well drained neutral and calcareous soils.
