Common Name
Flora of Virginia Name/Status
Not in Flora of Virginia; discovered after its publication.
Soreng and Simmons reported the first records (MD, VA, NC) of Poa iconia var. iconia from North America in Castanea 83: 270-271 (2018). Native to the Mediterranean region, this taxon is similar to Poa bulbosa L., and has often been lumped with it in the past. However, Soreng's studies of the P. bulbosa complex in Europe have found that P. iconia is genetically isolated from P. bulbosa and differs in a number of morphological characters.
Frequent in gladey floodplain swamp along Holmes Run, City of Alexandria (R.H. Simmons 4359 and 4363 at US, NY, AVCH).
