Southwestern bristlegrass

with 22 comments

I think you can see why this grass that I photographed on a field trip to the Cedar Stump Ranch on October 16 is called southwestern bristlegrass (Setaria scheelei). If there were no spaces between the clumps of bristles, this two-dimensional view might make you think you’re looking at a long feather.

Today marks the first appearance of southwestern bristlegrass in these pages.
