Bottlebrush Grass (Elymus hystrix) Greenish-brown, bristly spikelets in several to many clusters along a terminal spike atop an erect smooth stem.

Together, the groups of spikelets resemble a bottlebrush, hence the common name. The species name, from the Greek hystrix ("hedgehog"), aptly describes the bristly spikelets. This grass is sometimes known as Hystrix patula.
