Luzula multiflora ssp multiflora   Heath Wood-rush CC DD N

Luzual multiflora ssp multiflora

This is a quite common woodrush which flowers a good bit later and is about twice the height than the very common Luzula campestris (Good Friday Grass). It has two common sub species one of which (ssp congesta) is solid head of fruit and this one ssp multiflora with more than one flower head. Both have the typical woodrush hairy leaves.

Quite common throughout the British Isles though this sub species is, it is less commonly recorded than ssp congesta and tends to have a western preference in Great Britain and southern prefence in Ireland.
