Botanical Name

Common Name
Long-spike Tridens, Long-spike Fluffgrass
Flora of Virginia Name/Status
Tridens strictus (Nutt.) Nash
Our only Tridens with a dense, spikelike panicle. The nativity of this grass in our region seems doubtful. Its primary range is the lower Midwest, with widely scattered, usually weedy occurrences in the Mid-Atlantic states. The few Virginia populations do not appear to have persisted, further suggesting an ephemeral introduction.
Moist clearings, roadsides, and alluvial fields. Rare, Coastal Plain and Piedmont; known only from historical collections in York, James City, and Halifax counties.
