Deer-Tongue grass                  (Panicum clandestinum)

Deer tongue grass is a beautiful grass with an exotic bamboo-like appearance. Foliage turns yellow-brown in autumn.  The tiny flowers are produced on open, airy clusters called panicles.  Flowering occurs all summer, but the flowers produced earlier in the season are showier. Flowers produced early are silvery and are wind-pollinated. Flowers produced later in the season are often hidden from view and are self-pollinating.  This warm season, clumping grass tolerates dryness and infertile soils very well. It can be used for naturalizing in tough sites.
