Holcus lanatus   Yorkshire Fog CCC D N

Holcus lanatus

This is a very common greyish green grass which will grow happily on verges, waysides, waste places and in your garden if you let it.  The soft hairs on the leaves make this grass unusually soft to the touch.

H. lanatus is found throughout the British Isles and Ireland.
