Creeping foxtail

Gramineae Alopecurus arundinaceus Poir.

Source: Magness et al. 1971

This is a cool-season, sod-forming grass from Eurasia. It resembles meadow foxtail but has more vigorous rhizomes and broader leaves. It is used to a limited extent for hay, pasture and erosion control on moist sites in the Northern Great Plains, Intermountain Area, and Pacific Northwest. Forage is palatable and nutritious.
