Western Wheatgrass is often used in grazing pastures and is palatable to wildlife and livestock. While slow to germinate, it is long-lived once established. Stems appear singly or in small clusters and grow from 1 to 3 feet tall. The seed spike is stiff and about 2 to 6 inches. The ligule is inconspicuous, and the blue-green leaves are flat and rough on the upper surface with very prominent veins.
