Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. A genus of grasses of the tribe Festuceæ and subtribe Eufestuceæ, characterized by the commonly two-to six-flowered spikelets in a lax panicle, the smooth grain free from the palets, and the keeled and obtuse awnless flowering glume with five nerves converging at the apex. There are 100, or according to some over 200, species, widely dispersed, few in the tropics, most abundant in north temperate regions. They are known in general as meadow-grass or spear-grass. Some are low annuals, as P. annua, the low spear-grass, abundant by American roadsides and paths in parks, and blooming in he south from midwinter onward. The other American species are perennials, with tufted stems, often tall, and soft leaves, flat or less often convolute. The genus contains several valuable hay- and pasture-grasses, of which the most important is P. pratensis, the Kentucky blue-grass, june-grass, etc. (See
blue-grassand meadowgrass.) P. amabilis is cultivated under the name love-grass, P. trivi-alis as bird-grass, etc., and P. cæpitosa as Australian grass. For otherspecies,see bunch-grass,daggers (under dagger6)fowl-grass (under fowl), June-grass, silver grass, teff, and wire-grass.
