Setaria pumila is a member of the Poaceae family and grows as an annual. Native to Africa, Asia, and Europe, the grass can grow to a height of up to one meter, and in Central Europe it shows its spikes from July to September. They are covered with brownish bristles, allowing Setaria pumila and Setaria viridis to be distinguished. The two species can be seen growing together.
