Washington designated bluebunch wheatgrass (Pseudoroegneria spicate (formerly Agropyron spicatum) ) as the official state grass in 1989. All State Grasses & Plants - All State Flowers

Found in eastern Washington, bluebunch wheatgrass was a benefit to Washington's pioneer farmers and continues to play a major role in the state's agriculture industry.
