Idaho fescue

Gramineae Festuca idahoensis Elmer

Source: Magness et al. 1971

This is a native bunchgrass found from Washington and Montana south to California and Colorado. The large bunches reach to 3 feet with numerous smooth leaves. This is a valuable range grass, palatable while green, and also curing well for fall and winter forage. It has potential for seeding on range lands.
