Species of Grass
Nit grasses is a small but widespread genus of African and Eurasian plants in the grass family.
Windmill grasses look like clumps of long stems with spikes at the top. These tropical or subtropical plants can be found on beaches, in pastures, or by roadsides and are grown as attractive wild grasses. When planted in soil, these plants can also help to improve the fertility of the soil or stop erosion.
Chimonobambusa is a genus of East Asian bamboo in the grass family. They are native to China, Japan, Vietnam, Myanmar, and the Himalayas.
Indocalamus is a genus of about 35 species of flowering plants in the grass family Poaceae. They are quite small evergreen bamboos normally up to 2 m in height, initially forming clumps and then spreading to form larger thickets. They have thick, glossy leaves. Indocalamus species are native to China, Vietnam and Japan
The genus is widespread across many countries.
Common Rivergrass is a genus of grasses in the family Poaceae / Gramineae, now containing a single species. Common Rivergrass grows in Europe, temperate Asia, and North America. Its culms are erect and 99 - 150 cm in height; its leaf blades are 15 - 30 cm long and 5 - 10 mm wide.
Panicgrasses are large, robust grasses naturally found in many warm, tropical regions of the world. Their name originates from their dense flower clusters called "panicles"; the Latin word "panus" means "the grain millet." Some species are economically important as crops, forage plants, and in horticulture as decorative grasses.
The bromes are are considered "cool-season" grasses, because they tend to grow the most during spring and fall, rather than summer. Many bromes are confused for food for livestock; they look green, lush, and appetizing to grazing animals in early spring, but very quickly turn tough and brown, becoming poor fodder.
Couch grasses are tall grasses that are sometimes considered invasive garden weeds due to their creeping underground stems that grow rapidly and take over beds, borders, and lawns. They grow in almost all soil types and thrive in gardens, roadsides, and cultivated lands. In addition to serving as a cover crop and soil stabilizer, they are also used as feed for livestock and a lawn beautifier.
Aegilops is a genus of Eurasian and North American plants in the grass family, Poaceae. These are annual plants, sometimes from rhizomes. The taller species reach about 80 cm in maximum height. The flat leaves are linear to narrowly lance-shaped. The inflorescence is a spike with 2 to 12 solitary spikelets.
Dropseeds grasses are found on prairies with hilly terrain, black soil, and along railroad tracks. With their maintenance-free nature, open panicles, and golden bronze highlights in mid-to-late summer, they make excellent ornamental plants.
Bluestem is a genus of African, Asian, and Australian plants in the grass family.
Coleataenia (Coleataenia) grow as perennial or annual, evergreen grasses. Found in warm and tropical regions of the world, you will usually find coleataenia growing in cultivated fields and waste places. They generally feature small tufts with blades of grass ranging from 5 - 20 cm long. Some species are grown to produce birdseed.
False rhodes grass
Tridens are herbs that grow in dense clumps in a variety of habitats across the Americas. Many species of tridens typically form clusters of flowers in a loose branching system, similar to oats. Some species have been used as a forage crop for livestock and as ornamental grass when cultivated.
It has only one known species. It is native to Asia.
Paspalum are likely to be accountable for the biodiversity of ecosystems in the grasslands of South America. Paspalum have hundreds of ecologically diverse annual and perennial grass species associated with them, some of which have been utilized as forage grass.
Velvetgrass are temperate Eurasian and African grasses related to oats. Although their native range is distinct, they have been introduced and naturalized on all other continents as well. These plants got their common names "velvet grass" and "soft grass" due to the exquisitely soft feel of their inflorescences. Some species are hybridized and grown as ornamental grasses in gardens; others have an important ecological role as primary food plants for certain moths.
Hackelochloa is a genus of Asian and African plants in the grass family.
Junegrass are smooth or hairy grasses which grow in tufts. Long stems with clumps of flowers on the top grow from the center of some species. The grasses can be used to fill out lawns or to create the "rough" patches in golf courses. Some species attract butterflies and are planted in butterfly gardens.
The fairly cosmopolitan threeawn genus contains predominantly perennials, with just a few annuals. These grasses are typically found in warm and temperate areas with low rainfall. Although some species of the genus are cultivated for grazing, there have been reports that their bristles can injure cattle.
An extremely small genus of grasses, diplachne are intriguing plants. While some species have a cosmopolitan distribution and grow on all continents except Antarctica, others are restricted to small areas. Some studies report these grasses have nitrogen-fixing characteristics, and certain varieties are said to have extreme tolerance to saline environments.
golden dogs tail
Golden dogs tail is a Eurasian and African plant in the grass family. It has one known species. It is an annual plant, typically 30-45 centimetres in height, with clusters of golden flowers in a panicle 5 - 8 cm long and 2 - 2.5 cm broad. It is native to the Mediterranean Basin and neighboring regions from Portugal to the Canary Islands east to Ethiopia and northern India. It is also naturalized in parts of Australia and the Americas.
Signalgrass is a genus of plants in the grass family, native to Eurasia, Africa, Australia, Mexico, and the Pacific Islands.
Hair-grass is a genus of Old World plants in the grass family, native to western and southern Europe, central and southwest Asia, plus Africa. They have very slender leaves and stems. The species typically occur on dry, sandy sites, and grow to 20 - 40 cm tall.
Bluestem grass are grasses that are frequently used to control erosion. Many of these annual or perennial grasses display obvious bristles, which aids in their identification. Bluestem grass generally have narrow leaves and small blooms. When cultivated, they are often used for prairie planting and city gardens as they are easy to maintain.
