Dichelachne inaequiglumis / a Plumegrasss

The specimen photographed here is mounted on an A3 sized sheet so you can see it is quite large. The plume grasses are so named because of the abundance of hairs or awns (sometimes more than 3 cm long) in the seed. This grass grows in tufts and can be 1 metre tall and leaves up to 2 mm wide – sometimes with the edges rolled under. Created: 08/23/2011
