(Tall Oatgrass)

Bulbous oatgrass is a perennial clump-forming grass and spreads rapidly by round bulb-like corms. It is native to Europe but considered an invasive weed in the western United States. It spreads and quickly escapes beyond the confines of a garden, so most refrain from planting it.

This prolific grass has medium green blades that are short, upright, linear and rough to the touch. The inconspicuous pale green or purple flowers are produced in late spring and early summer and resemble oats.
