Some of the mountain species of POA are extremely variable in small characters.
For difficulties with other species of Avena and POA see pp. 44, 54 and 60.
The caterpillars feed on POA annua, Dactylis glomerata, etc.
POA bulbosa has drier leaves than usual, but its leaves are devoid of ridges.
It feeds on the annual meadow-grass (POA annua), and several other grasses.
The flowers are fewer than in any other POA, and may be only two.
POA alpina, L., has the palea five-ribbed with stiffish hairs below, but no web.
Very like a POA when opened out, but the leaves are scabrid at the sheaths.
Bluegrass (POA pratensis) and crabgrass (Digitaria ischaemum) form most of the sod.
From his father POA received an enchanted flute and a magic song, which would win the heart of the maid he loved.
