Black Grained Mountain Rice

Black-grained Mountain Rice (Oryzopsis racemosa) is a later, broad-leaved species found in woods and on ledges, where it blooms in midsummer.

The plant is larger than Whitegrained Mountain Rice and usually bears a longer panicle of darker flowers; nor are the stem-leaves minute, as are those of that earlier species.
