Puccinellia pallida of Michigan Flora.

Pond borders, wet hollows in forests, bogs, cat-tail marshes, often in shallow water.

Though the bases are typically decumbent, the upper part of the plant, even when growing in shallow water, is often upright, and it can form dense and conspicuous stands; very local northward. A July 1888 Farwell collection from Keweenaw County is suspected to be the result of a label error and is not mapped.
