Slender Sphenopholis Grass

Dry, open woods are the home of the Slender Sphenopholis (Sphenopholis nitida) which shows a more open panicle in bloom, though the branches are drawn closely to the stem before and after blossoming.

The plant is somewhat more slender than others of this genus, and the spikelets are not so crowded, but the same pale green colour is characteristic of the whole plant.
