Orchard grass

Dactylis glomerata, orchard grass, is another common roadside plant that is considered a weed, common plant in hayfields and meadows. Native to Europe like smooth brome, orchard grass is ubiquitous in North Central and Northeastern US. The branched inflorescence is characteristic of orchard grass, making it easy to identify: there is almost always a lower branch at a wide, nearly 90 degree angle from the main stem or culm.
