The long-awned species of festuca have compact stiff panicles and narrow or setaceous leaves (see p. 111).
festuca elatior, Bromus giganteus and most species of Agrostis come near Lolium.
In stems of grasses such as festuca, Dactylis, etc., also on wood-rush.
Of all the symbols employed in connection with feoffments, however, the rod (festuca) had the widest vogue on the continent.
Bromus giganteus has leaves glabrous and very like festuca elatior.
Meadow Fescue (festuca pratensis, fig. 20) may be taken as the type of the broad-leaved fescues.
The fescue (festuca ovina), a little fern (Woodsia), and a saussurea ascend very near the summit.
festuca elatior is easily confused with the glabrous Bromes.
In festuca ovina the ears are short, stiff, and erect (Fig. 13).
Alopecurus pratensis has more depressed, flatter and broader ridges than festuca, and a longer ligule, and lacks the pointed ears.
