Timothy Grass

Scientific name: Phleum pratense

This grass is found throughout the UK, especially in meadows and fields or on roadside verges. It’s often grown for hay and fodder, so may be seen in large quantities in cultivated fields.

It has cylinder-shaped flower spikes that are 6-15cm long and 6-10mm wide. They sit on the top of a tall thin stem (40-150cm tall). Leaves are grey-green, hairless, and flat.
