Panicum colonum L., Syst. Nat. ed. 10. 2: 870. 1759.

Annuals; culm glabrous, 20-80 cm long, decumbent, branched from basal nodes. Blade 6-15 cm long, 3-8 mm wide, margins scabrous; sheath slightly keeled, shorter than internode; ligule absent. Panicle 5-15 cm long, racemes distantly spaced on central axis, 1-2 cm long. Spikelets hispid, 2-3 mm long, awnless or minutely awned; glumes and lower lemma glabrous to scabrous-pubescent, veins scabroushispid; lower glume 1/3 to 1/2 as long as spikelet, 3-veind; upper glume subequal to lower lemma, mucronate to awn-pointed, 5-veined, flattened abaxially, enclosing a hyaline palea of equal length; upper lemma rounded abaxially, smooth and shining; anther ca. 0.8 mm long.
