Eragrostis species?


Eragrostis atrovirens. This is a highly variable species with variation in colour of spikelets, though atrovirens means ‘dark green’. In this picture, the colour is not that dark green and is also suffused with some purple colouration. There is also variation in size of the plant, perennation, length of inflorescence, etc. If left ungrazed, it can become very tall with long and dense inflorescence.
