(the wild goat, which feeds upon this grass). Gramfnew. Low, creeping perennials, with short, flat leaves and slender spikes, which spread out at the apex into finger-like branches. Spikelets l-fld., awnless, sessile, in two rows along one side of a slender, continuous axis. Glumes 3, the first 2 narrow, keeled, usually acute, empty; the third or floral glume broader and usually a little longer than the empty ones. Species 4. One distributed throughout the tropical and warmer temperate regions of the world. Dlctylon, Kuntze (Ogjnodon Ddctylon. Pers.). Baa MUDA Guass. Fig. 352. A widely dispersed grass, with a creeping habit of growth, extending rapidly over the surface of the ground and rooting at the joints. Used extensively in the south for lawn-making, where Ken tucky blue grass and the bent grasses cannot be success fully grown. Except in the far south, however, it is not a desirable lawn grass, as it quickly turns brown upon the approach of cold weather, and is rather late in be coming green in the spring. A variety known as St. Lucie Grass is regarded as a ore desirable form for lawns than the species. Experiments made in central Michi gan by Beal seem to show that Bermuda Grass is val uable to mix with June grass for a lawn where the soil is rather thin, the June grass occupying the soil from early spring until hot, dry weather, when the Ber muda covers the ground. In the cool autumn, June grass appears again at the surface.
