Melica uniflora - Wood Melick




Melica uniflora (Wood Melick)
Slape Lane, Burton In Kendal on May 25th 2020

We do have Melica uniflora (Wood Melick) throughout Hutton Roof and its reasonably common.  We are also fortunate to have the very rare Melica nutans (Mountain Melick)

The Nutans shows the leaves stained purple, and also the fruits hang individually from very short stems coming off the main stem. A look very familiar to anyone aware of the P. odoratum (Angular Solomons Seal)

Yet the Uniflora fruits and stems are very much more spread out and have several stems branching off from the main stem which may branch yet again and have two or more fruits hanging from each branch off.  You see an example of the branch off at the very top right of the above photo
