Growing wild down our shared driveway. Curiously, these same plants were also flowering in late winter this year, curtailed by the big snow, and are now flowering again.

Description from Wikipedia

Briza is a genus of annual and perennial grasses in the family Poaceae, native to northern temperate regions. The group is generally referred to as the quaking grasses because the flowers and seedheads shake on their stalks in the slightest breeze. Some of its members are grown as ornamental plants.

No range data available.
