Agropyron (Elymus) albicans

Agropyron albicans, Montana wheatgrass, has been long-persistent on the Burke Park ridge in east Bozeman, where its two progenitor species are common, Agropyron spicatum (bluebunch wheatgrass) and Agropyron dasystachyum (thickspike wheatgrass). Agropyron albicans (center three spikes) has the very loosely bunched rhizomatous habit, persistent florets and glume-length internodes of Agropyron dasystachyum (left two spikes) but the long curved lemma awns and relatively glabrous lemmas of Agropyron spicatum (right two spikes).
