You send the same link twice, and I must shamefully admit, I don’t know this one !
Please send another link to give me a second chance at guessing 🙂May 9, 2014 at 12:35 am #152707
Im so sorry for posting the same link….here is the first one :http://wisont.files.wordpress.com/2014/01/shma-23estate-09.jpg?w=584
Thank you so much for taking the time in answering my queryMay 9, 2014 at 3:02 pm #152706
Appears to be a species of pennisetum. Perhaps one of the running species rather than the clumpers, but can’t tell for sure from photsMay 9, 2014 at 4:44 pm #152705
Good eye, Rob !
It’s Pennisetum Alopecuroides, comes in clumps.
It’s red cousin is Pennisetum setaceum, cv. ‘Rubrum’ (same aspect, bronze red color)
Both available in the US if I’m not mistaken.May 9, 2014 at 10:42 pm #152704
Thanks, but I am not convinced it is P. Alopecuroides. .Pennisetum orientale maybe? P. macrourum ?May 10, 2014 at 6:47 am #152703
I like these grasses, and in my books it was pictured as P. alopecuroides. But you made me doubt the book (local books not so trustworthy), I had to search the answer and turned to my favorite site: wikipedia.
Pennisetum alopecuroides actually looks like the grass in the first 2 links
Pennisetum setaceum should be the right one
Pennisetum orientale I’ve never seen it. As far as I know not available here.
Pennisetum macrourum Had never heard of it. As far as I know not available here.
It’s always good to learn more about plants (especially nice looking grasses ^^ ), thanks guys !May 10, 2014 at 9:12 am #152702
Thank you so much!! I love grasses , i think they are very much under-utilized here (philippines)…and im doing a mini research on emergent grass species for my mastersMay 10, 2014 at 9:26 am #152701
Here in Thailand you couldn’t find a single one up until roughly 5 yrs ago. Now the trend caught up and you see them everywhere. There is a new one popping-up every year or so. I believe the trend should spread with the same speed in the Philipines : seeing is believing.May 10, 2014 at 2:00 pm #152700
There are many beautiful Pennisetums but one must be careful in the tropics where some have become invasive pest species.
The grass in the first two links is not, I think, a Pennisetum. Flower seems all wrong. Perhaps a species of Calamagrostis?
