Graminea Phalaris coerulescens Dessf.

Sunolgrass, introduced from Australia in 1935, and Koleagrass, introduced from Morocco in 1955, are not being grown commercially at present in the United States but are in testing proorams to determine their usefulness. Both are bunchgrasses that have round bulb-like enlargements at the base of the stems. Both are rapid growers. Sunolgrass is a poor seed producer so Koleagrass, which produces ample seed, is of more promise. Adaptation of both is limited to areas having mild winters.
