See Comments under Agrostis gigantea, with which this species was previously lumped in Virginia studies. Map is a very incomplete pending further field and herbarium work to separate these taxa.
Wet to dry fields, impoundment margins, and other open, disturbed habitats; sometimes invasive in natural habitats, especially montane bogs and fens. Not uncommon, but status poorly known. Additional work will be necessary to determine differences in status between this species and the similar Agrostis gigantea.
