Oh, those native grasses
Here’s a native grass, Schizachyrium scoparium, that’s known as little bluestem. That color name aside, slender sections of this grass often turn red in the fall. This picture, which I sat on the ground and leaned over to take, is from the same October 29 session in northwest Austin that brought you the photograph of a ladies’ tresses orchid.
