Default How about some grass pics.

A few grasses that I have photographed and had named. Woodland Grasses. Not sure if this is where they should go.

Nothing more soothing than a field of swaying grass!
I liked the play in the Bulbous Bluegrass, Poa bulbosa ssp vivipara, although I see it is an introduced perennial plant.

Could you by chance help me out with the grasses I've set into post #74 here Seedheads and Winter Interest
I don't know which "if any" I should keep. Any suggestions? I don't want anything taking over as I've planted native floral seeds in there but DID want to include a "few" grasses for added interest.

Sorry, I'm no expert on naming things. Even my experts have to really have specimans in hand to ID them.

hava> Like he said.... it's really hard for experts to tell the difference without a specimen and a good key. When I see you.... ask me for my books on grasses and sedges.... they'll make for good bathroom reading! From what I'm seeing in your 4 photos.... your last 2 are fairly common and should be ripped out of the ground... especially the sedge.... that's capable of taking off like gangbusters and creating a weeding nightmare for you.
