Port Clarence Germplasm largeflower speargrass (pdf file) Poa eminens,
Selected Class “Natural”
Largeflower speargrass grows in coastal areas, most often behind foredunes or where foredunes do not exist. As an aggressive species that spreads vegetatively by rhizomes, it develops into large stands in coastal wetland situations. This accession was originally collected near the Port Clarence LORAN Station northwest of Nome, Alaska. This species is intended to be used on revegetation projects throughout coastal Alaska. Port Clarence germplasm was released in 2007 (Wright, 2007).
