Meadow grass/Kentucky blue is native to Europe and Asia, this grass now has worldwide distribution in temperate regions. It is probably the most important introduced grass in North America. It is best adapted for growth in cool, humid climates. In North America, though it occurs in every one of the United States, it is most prevalent in the northern half of the United States and the southern half of Canada. It is a highly palatable pasture grass and is also extensively used for lawns and turf. It is a major pollen-producer.

Meadow grass pollen is a common inducer of asthma, allergic rhinitis and allergic conjunctivitis. Copyright Copyright © 2006 Phadia AB. Source: ImmunoCap, ImmunoCap
