B. S. Walters
Chiefly associated with jack pine, including wet depressions, but also with oaks, on dolomite pavement of Drummond Island, in fens, in prairie openings in southern Michigan, and on banks of streams and lakes.
A rare specimen of B. pubescens with the first glume weakly 3-nerved might run here but could be readily distinguished by its longer awns and anthers. This is a smaller, quite attractive, species, usually well under 1 m tall, and with a compact inflorescence.
