A relatively short-lived perennial, cool season, introduced bunchgrass grows in erect stools or culms 20 to 40” tall. It has a shallow, compact, and fibrous root system which thrives best on rich, moist bottomlands and on finer textured soils, such as clay loams, and does not do well on coarser soils. Timothy is palatable and nutritious and mostly for used for hay but also makes good pasture and silage. It has adapted to a cool and humid climate and distributed throughout the entire United States.
