Good afternoon people, Can anyone tell me what this 'grass' could be, it is about 12in tall, very sturdy and has '2 flower heads' appearing. I never planted it, so expect a bird has left it in my garden . Thank you for looking.




I get this from the 'corn' in the bird food I put out.
so it is Wheat what we grow to make flour for bread and cakes. it will pull out easily.

meant to say the flower heads are in fact the seeds forming. its also called an ear of wheat.

Thanks for that Seaburngirl, I did wonder if it was, but then thought how would it get in my garden lol. I shall keep it, its in a pot and see how much it grows, you never know, I might grind it down to make the much needed flour that is in short supply here. :) x

It's just as interesting as some ornamental grasses and the birds will thank you for it later.
