Melica uniflora, commonly called wood melick, is a rhizomatous, perennial grass that is native to Europe, southwestern Asia and northern Africa. It typically grows in slowly spreading clumps to 12-24" tall. It is noted for performing well in dry, shady areas. Flat, thin, rough, linear, pointed, green leaves (to 8" long) are pubescent above. Ovate, purple-brown, flower spikelets (each to 3" long) appear in summer in minimally-branched panicles.
