You are right, Jacque - this photo was taken when the grass was in 'flower' a few months ago. - that's the feathery, fluffy look. I added it to 'My Garden' because I finally found out what species it was! I love it.

Beautiful plant. Why do they give such long latin names to GRASS ??
;o )

I agree - however, it has two common names - 'Reed grass' and 'Smallweed'.(YUK) On second thoughts, I shall stick to Calamagrostis!

lol lol ok I agree with you! The common names are not ones to conjure the beauty of the plant. I'll just practice the pronounciation ;o )
