Finger-spiked Wood Grass
Fiinger-spiked Wood Grass (Andropogon furcatus) grows about four feet high. The leaves are smooth, the spikes digitate, or generly by threes and fours. The lower flowers are awnless and the spikelets roughis, and downy with the awn bent. A glume, seen here, is one of the two chaffy bracts at the base of a grass spikelet.
