Annual monocot winter grass. Germination season is between September and
November. Native and widespread in U.S.. Height ranges from 4 to 24 inches.
Stems turn brown or golden in spring when grass is matured. It is considered
to be an invasive pest by modern agriculturists. None of my research uncovered
any domestic uses for little barley.
