Slender Wood Reed Grass


Slender Wood Reed-grass (Cinna latifolia) is also a grass of late summer, and though in many localities this species is less common than Wood Reed-grass it is not infrequently found in deep woods and on mountainsides.

It is more slender than the preceding species and bears a less densely flowered panicle of spreading or drooping branches.

The flowers of these grasses have but one stamen, and the palets are remarkable in that they show but one nerve.
