Ventenata dubia (Ventenata)

Author(s): Janet L. Fryer
Year Published: 2017

Ventenata is a nonnative, annual grass that is invasive in parts of the Pacific Northwest. A review of the literature and observational evidence shows that its establishment and spread is greatest in Palouse prairie and sagebrush communities and in previously barren scablands. It also occurs in low-elevation ponderosa pine stands.
