Soft Tussock-grass resembles Grey Tussock-grass, except that the stalks and leaves are softly hairy with spreading hairs to about 1mm long. The leaves are often greyish. The glumes are also often shortly hairy. A variety of Grey Tussock-grass also has hairy leaves; these hairs are short and stiff, less than 0.5mm and usually inclined to the leaf surface.
