Canada wildrye is often confused with Virginia Wildrye (Elymus virginicus). The base of the glumes on Canada wildrye is “V” shaped and longer awns (3/8-1 ¼ in) whereas Virginia wildrye will have glumes that are “U” shaped and shorter awns (3/16-3/4 in). Canada wildrye grows abundantly on prairie sites, but is also found in shaded areas on bottomland sites. It is best adapted to medium textured soils, but grows on most all types of prairie soils. It is found in abundance along roadsides and protected areas, which indicates that it is a decreaser on prairie sites. It is a very palatable and is readily eaten by all classes of livestock.
