Morphology General Habit
Perennial; mat forming. Culms 40-100 cm long. Ligule an eciliate membrane. Leaf-blades 3-6 mm wide; coriaceous; stiff; glaucous. Leaf-blade surface scabrous; rough adaxially.
Morphology Reproductive morphology Inflorescences
Inflorescence composed of racemes. Peduncle pubescent above. Racemes 1; single; linear; bilateral; 8-25 cm long. Rhachis pubescent on surface. Spikelet packing broadside to rhachis. Rhachis internodes linear. Spikelets appressed; in pairs, or in threes. Fertile spikelets sessile; 2-3 in the cluster.
Morphology Reproductive morphology Inflorescences Spikelets
Spikelets comprising 2-3 fertile florets; with diminished florets at the apex. Spikelets oblong; laterally compressed; 12-15 mm long; breaking up at maturity; disarticulating below each fertile floret.
Fertile
