Hordeum brachyantherum californicum

California Barley.

We currently do not grow this plant.

Commonly grows in fields dominated by alien grasses and weeds (Bromus diandrus, Agrostis sp. Erodium sp. Hordeum jubatum, etc) grazed, no trees in evidence, north slope, soil clay/serpentine, many outcroppings of solid serpentine rock, with Calystegia subacaulis ssp. episcopalis, Calochortus argillaceous, Sisyrinchium bellum, Bloomeria crocea, serpentine tolerant obviously, found in heavier soils or wetter areas, such as meadows, or stream edges, not invasive, attractive perennial in clumps with its associated plants, could be used in a meadow garden in serpentine areas as there would be less competition from alien plants.. The grass is just too noncompetitive to grow where weeds exist.
