Habitat: Roadsides, pastures, and clearings.

Description: Long stem, tufted, grows in large clumps.  The flower at the tip is very dense, spiky with a hairy fringe. Stands very straight.  Light green in color, that turns to brown through the summer.

Size: 40-90cm tall.

Fun Facts: Timothy grass produces pollen that many people are allergic to, so it is used when making vaccines and medicine used for hay fever.
