Oblong spike of flowers on the end of a leafless stalk arising from a basal rosette of long, narrow leaves. The small flowers are densely crowded together and face in all directions along the spike. The spike becomes light brown and more cylindrical as the flowers bloom from the bottom to the top. The flowers are wind-pollinated, and are replaced by small seed capsules.
Growing in a sunny, hot meadow.
