    Description

    Reed canarygrass (Phalaris arundinacea) is a cool-season perennial grass that can survive in a wide range of environmental conditions. It is native to Eurasia and North America; however over the past 100 years, several cultivars have been bred for forage, bioenergy, ornamental use, and restoration (Lavergne and Molofsky 2004). Distinguishing between native and nonnative strains is very difficult. It is believed that most colonies in the Midwest are of Eurasian origin (Czarapata 2005).
