Slender false brome, also known as wood brome or wood false-brome, is a perennial grass which typically grows in shade as distinct tufts or clumps of long wide flat green leaves which droop down at the edges of the tufts. The flowering stems arch up out of the tufts to 90cm with drooping heads which can persist into winter in sheltered positions. The quantity of flowering shoots produced each year depends on light levels and can be quite sparse in deeper shade.
