Here's a wider look at cow-wheat. It often grows in patches because the seeds are not widely distributed. That is probably to keep it close to its hosts. Leaves vary from less than a quarter inch wide to these wider ones that are about a half-inch. It is sometimes called narrow-leaf cow-wheat, but that just seems confusing since its all one species.

What is it with all these 'white' conifers? Spruce and fir I get. They both have pale stripes on their leaves; spruce on its four-sided needles, fir on its two sided ones (to answer yesterday's question). But cedar? I can't see any excuse for calling it white when it's not snowing.

White spruce, now white fir. See the difference?
