The grass has slender creeping rhizomes. The culms are 25–970 centimetres (9.8–380 in) tall. It inflorescence is comprised out of 5–15 fertile spikelets, which are both oblong and compressed, with the length of 6–8 millimetres (0.24–0.31 in). They are comprise out of 2-3 fertile florets that are diminished at the apex. The florets are 5–7 millimetres (0.20–0.28 in) long and are elliptic.
