Agropyron (Elymus) albicans
This rhizomatous to loosely bunched species is possibly a hybid between thickspike wheatgrass (Agropyron dasystachyum) and bluebunch wheatgrass (Agropyron spicatum). The loosely bunched habit and awned lemmas are from bluebunch wheatgrass and the rhizomatous habit and spike with overlapping spikelets come from thickspike.
