Poa pratensis   Smooth Meadow-grass CCC D N

Poa pratensis

This is a very common grass and the only difficulty is identification. Of the two very common but tall Poa species to be found in unimproved grassland, this one grows to about 80 cm and has a short ligule.

Poa pratensis is found throughout the British Isles and Ireland including the outer islands.
