quackgrass (Elytrigia repens; GRASS FAMILY [Poaceae]) An introduced perennial grass with erect stems (1-3') and erect green or purplish spikes.  Spreads extensively by rhizomes.  Spikelets are well separated and several flowered.  A good forage grass, but because of its rhizomes is as troublesome a weed as there is in Central Wisconsin.  Flowers early in the summer.  [130]
