Roughstalk bluegrass

Gramineae, Poaceae Poa trivialis L.

Source: Magness et al. 1971

This bluegrass generally resembles Kentucky blue but differs in that it does not have rhizomes. It is native to Europe and is more important there as a pasture grass than in this country. It is used in this country for pasture on wet soils and for lawns in shaded areas. It is not adapted to droughty conditions. Although highly palatable, its restricted areas of adaptation Iimit its general agricultural importance.
