Fowl Meadow (Poa serotina), also called False Redtop, has two to four spikelets, sometimes five flowered. The ligules are oval, spear-shaped. The flowers are green, often tinge with purple. Roots are slightly creeping. It is very common in wet meadows and banks of streams and flowers in July and August. The panicle is erect and spreading when in flower but more contracted and drooping when ripe. Here we see a magnified spikelet. The flower is shown here. The germ of the Fowl Meadow grass is shown here.
