Poa alpina (Alpine bluegrass)

Short, densely tufted, cool season, perennial bunch grass adapted to sub-alpine and alpine slopes and meadows. Leaves form a dense mat providing good soil cover. Good palatability for wildlife but does not produce a lot of forage. Useful for revegetating high elevation rangelands.
