Quaking-Grass, or Briza, L. a genus of plants, consisting of seven species, three of which are indigenous; and the principal of these is the media, Common Quaking-grass, Middle Quake-grass, Cow-quakes, or Ladies - hair : it grows in fields and pastures, and flowers in the month of May or June.—This species is eaten by cows, sheep, and goats. It makes tolerably good hay ; and, as it thrives on poor wet lands, where other grasses will not vegetate, it deserves to be cultivated in marshy situations; though its stalk seldom exceeds twelve inches in height.
