Briza maxima / Kobansou コバンソウ

 
Many ago, Briza maxima, an annual introduced from Europe, now grow wild, making significantly large communities throughout western Japan. Leaves are 5-12cm in length, 3-8mm in width, and linear-lanceolate shape. Inflorescences are panicle-like; some to 20 spikelets set on tips of fine thready pedicles hang down. Those spikelets are 1.4-2.2cm long, 0.8-1.3cm wide, in the shape of a swollen ovate-oblong, at the first light green, becoming yellow-brown later. Bloom time: May-July.
