Grass identification



Grass identification

Sun Feb 17, 2013 5:46 am

A lot of plant life going on in this photo but it's the silvery green grass in the center that I'm trying to identify. I see it growing in clumps everywhere. BTW, my other website was hacked and, although I've cleaned out the bad files, I am now uploading to Photobucket.

This past summer I wasn't much concerned with grasses so I didn't deliberately take many photos of it. I'll pay closer attention this year.

That looks like it could be a variety of Bentgrass (Argrostis genus) but that is purely a guess at this time.

Has mankind reached a point where it is too much for nature to accommodate?

It looks somewhat like that but maybe the blades are broader on my grass. Also, that particular plant isn't listed as growing in my county, but that doesn't always mean anything. The best part is, I started looking at photos of all fescues in my state and I identified another grass. Thank you :-)

Your welcome MarcP, I have a few indefinable plants around the place that I need to put a tag on as well it all takes time.
