Description of Plant(s) and Culture

Bearded darnel is an annual plant; the stiff, round, hollow stalk grows to a height of 1-3 feet and bears long, linear, flat leaves that are rolled up when young. The flowers grow on a terminal spike consisting of 5-7 flowered spikelets, each of which is embraced along almost its full length by a bract. Long, stiff bristles point upward from the flowers. The seed is small, yellow-brown to orange-brown, ovate, and somewhat compressed.
