Version 2.77


Velvet grass is native and common to most of Europe, though it is absent in the northernmost regions. It now has a worldwide distribution including temperate regions in western Eurasia, the USSR, and Australia. It was introduced in North America, where it is occasionally cultivated as meadow. The name Velvet grass perhaps comes from the appearance its pale purple flower heads make when growing amassed in an open field. In many countries H. lanatus is considered a weed and only of minor importance for grazing.

Velvet grass pollen can induce asthma, allergic rhinitis and allergic conjunctivitis. Copyright Copyright © 2006 Phadia AB. Source: ImmunoCap, ImmunoCap
