Agropyron cristatum R. W. Smith

Disturbed areas, roadsides.

Included here are plants that have been identified as A. pectiniforme and A. desertorum in Michigan. These are drought-tolerant perennials that have been extensively hybridized for agricultural use in the West. First collected in 1939 in Washtenaw Co., but surely only a transient element of our flora.
