Very common along hiking Valley View Trail in Pfeiffer Big Sur SP.
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.
