ALOPECURUS pratensis 'Aureus'
Golden Meadow Foxtail, Meadow Foxtail
This yellow-hued perennial grass has linear blades that are golden yellow to yellow green. It is a clump-forming grass that spreads more slowly than average meadow foxtail, so it is less apt to be weedy.
Meadow foxtail is a perennial cool-season grass native to Eurasia. It forms spreading clumps and has large upright yellow blades that are flattened and rough to the touch. The tiny inconspicuous flowers are borne on tall cylindrical spikes held well above the foliage. It grows best in moist locations and is found in wetlands, roadside ditches and irrigated fields.
