Quaking grass is a perennial evergreen grass with flat grey-green leaves and branched heads of green-yellow flowers, common in England and Wales. The loose heads of quaking-grass are a distinctive feature of meadows and grasslands, particularly those on chalky soils. The flowers and seedheads shake on their stalks in the slightest breeze.

Briza species are used as food plants by the larvae of some Lepidoptera (moth) including Coleophora lixella.
