Yorkshire Fog Holcus lanatus
Tufted grass to 100 cm, softly greyish hairy throughout, the inflorescence often with a purplish pink tinge, especially when young.
Similar to Holcus mollis but that species has more or less hairless stems whereas Holcus lanatus has downy stems. The node hairs of Holcus lanatus are not as long as those of Holcus mollis. The two species do hybridise to give Holcus x hybridus.
In all types of grassland, roadside verges and waste ground.
May to July.
