From May to June you can find flowering poverty brome (Bromus sterilis) in Central Europe. These plants can be 50 cm long (approx. 1.5 ft). Right after flowering, they are green. When ripening, their colour changes into dark red or purple. The fine hair on the ears of poverty brome are about two centimeters (approx. ¾ inch) long. Many pet birds like to eat flowering or half-ripe poverty brome.
