I concur. The ligule is too long, the veins are too apparent, and the blade lacks the two lines parallel to the midvein. --Cbrownhead 16:12, 16 October 2006 (UTC)
Native to North America
According to the United States Dept. of Agriculture, Poa pratensis or Kentucky bluegrass is both native to the US and also introduced [] . Various subspecies are purely native: P.p. subsp. alpigena, P.p. subsp. colpodea and P.p. subsp. pratensis. P.p. subsp. irrigata is an introduced subspecies. From this, it appears that either there are subspecies that developed in the US after the introduction of the Old World plant or the plant existed in North America as well as the Old World. Since Poa pratensis is identified as both native and introduced, the latter conclusion does seem to be suggested. In this case, the first paragraph of this article should be amended to indicate that P. pratensis is also native to North America. In any case, Poa pratensis should be at least co-extensively identified as Kentucky bluegrass. Does anyone have information about this? NaySay 18:27, 21 June 2007 (UTC)
Should there should be a section here about how bluegrass relates to house lawns, as it is one of the most common cultivars. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 14:39, 6 May 2011 (UTC)
