Poa alsodes A. A. Reznicek

Rich deciduous or mixed forests and thickets.

When growing in the same forests as P. sylvestris, our other common southern forest understory Poa, P. alsodes matures earlier and has a broader and more diffuse, lax (often nodding) inflorescence; P. sylvestris has the inflorescence stiff and relatively narrow.
