Description

Foxtail Barley (squirreltail Barley)
Hordeum jubatum, with common names foxtail barley, bobtail barley, squirreltail barley, and intermediate barley,is a perennial plant species in the grass family Poaceae.

A single, densely packed, nodding to arching spike 2 to 4 inches long at the tip of the stem, with a group of 3 spikelets (flower clusters) at each node. Each spikelet has a single floret and is whitish green to purplish at flowering time. The lateral spikelets are sterile and short-stalked, the center spikelet fertile and stalkless.

At the base of each spikelet is a pair of bracts (glumes) that are 1 to 3½ inches long, not much broadened at the base and essentially just a long, rough awn, initially erect and straight, becoming spreading with maturity. Florets are surrounded by a pair of bracts (lemma and palea), the fertile lemma narrowly lance-elliptic, 4 to 8.5 mm long with a rough awn up to 3½ inches long, the awn erect to ascending; the fertile palea is about as long as the lemma and not awned. Sterile lemma are smaller with shorter awns and are often reduced to just a bristle.
Leaves are alternate, 2 to 6 inches long, up to 5 mm wide, rough textured to softly hairy, flat or rolled up along the edge (involute), and green to blue-green

The sheath is open, green with pale, translucent edging, the edges overlapping near the tip, usually hairless, sometimes hairy. The ligule (membrane where the leaf joins the sheath) is .2 to .8 mm long, more or less straight across, and hairless. Nodes are hairless and brown to purplish. Stems are unbranched, smooth, erect or the lower stem prostrate then rising at the lower node (genticulate). Stems are multiple from the base and form loose to dense clumps.

Spikelets turn tan as they mature, the glumes curving outward near the base as they dry, with the straight awns giving the cluster a spiky bottle-brush appearance. The entire group of 3 spikelets drops off when mature, leaving a naked stem behind. Grains (seeds) are oval-elliptic and smooth except for short hairs at the tip.

It occurs wild mainly in northern North America and adjacent northeastern Siberia. However, as it escaped often from gardens it can be found worldwide in areas with temperate to warm climates, and is considered a weed in many countries. The species is a polyploid and originated via hybridization of an East Asian Hordeum species with a close but extinct relative of Californian H. brachyantherum. It is grown as an ornamental plant for its attractive inflorescences and when done flowering for its infructescence.
Elegant but easy-care, ornamental grasses are being welcomed into more and more backyards. Gardeners love their graceful shapes and subtle colors. And their delicate flower tassels and plumes -- called inflorescence -- inspire evocative names, such as bottlebrush, cloud grass, foxtail and turkey foot.

Perfect for eco-friendly gardeners, grasses are tolerant of many soil types and thrive with lots of sun, little rain and no chemicals or fertilizer. Native grasses, especially, are also an attractive food source for birds and butterflies.

All my seeds come with full growing instructions and are packaged in reusable zip lock bags to keep your seed fresh and dry.if you order more than one of these packs of seeds they will be shipped in one package unless otherwise requested.
