Timothy Grass | Phleum pratense

Known as timothy grass, herd’s grass or meadow cat’s tail.

Timothy grass is a tall, robust, perennial grass which is a faded grey-green in colour and grows to over a metre in height.  This species grows naturally across most of the UK, where its long, cylindrical flowers can be seen between June and August.

It is a very palatable grass variety and is included widely in mixtures for grazing and hay production.

Drought-resistant, it copes well with sandy or heavy soils, and grows abundantly on heavy ground.  It is very winter hardy, disease-free, and can be combined with long-term perennial ryegrass to extend the life of a mixture and provide late-season growth.

Height Up to 150cm
Latin name Phleum Pratense
Setting Likes most soil but prefers moist heavy ones
