Leymus

 

a genus of plants of the family Gramineae. They are perennial grasses, generally with creeping rhizomes and stiff leaves. The spikelets are arranged on spikes in groups of two to six or, more rarely, singly. There are approximately 30 species, distributed in Eurasia and North America. Approximately 15 species are found in the USSR, predominantly in the southern regions. They are salt-tolerant and drought-resistant. Some species have fodder value. Many species are good for the stabilization of sand. The weed Ley mus ramosus is extremely difficult to destroy.
