Elymus triticoides - Creeping Wild-Rye, Valley Wild-Rye, or Alkali Rye, is native in moist bottom lands throughout much of the west. Looks like a cross between Bermuda grass and Salt grass. Use as you would Red fescue on watered slopes, or to cover the ground under Valley Oaks-Sycamores-Cottonwoods.
This grass was covering the bluffs in Carpinteria. Made a lawn in some of the areas. Here in the central coast ranges have seen it growing under Quercus lobata, with Asclepias eriocarpa, Erigeron foliosus, young Toxicodendron diversilobum, young Rhamnus californica, young Heteromeles arbutifolia, Verbena lasiostachys, and Rhamnus ilicifolia. (syn. Leymus triticoides, and it breaks the database to change it)

Elymus triticoides tolerates alkaline soil, clay, no drainage and seasonal flooding.

Elymus triticoides's foliage color is lt-green and type is deciduous.
Elymus triticoides's flower color is na.

Communities for Elymus triticoides:Great Basin Sage, Northern Oak Woodland, Riparian (rivers & creeks) and Central Oak Woodland.
