romantic grass of the week - elytrigia repens a Club Sound Witches - CSW grass - really an introducedy austrian witch grass, can't really find it in qld. its a european couch, found mostly in vic, tas, sa, and nsw. its taller than our common lawn couch - cynodon dactylon. and its in a different tribe, its just got one spike as a flower not the 3 to 6 of our smaller lawn species. can be smoked as a resin, used as a poultice for pain relief, diuretic tea/anti-inflammatory. it also just spreads through rhizomes.. underground, not the rhizomes and stolons like our lawn couch. check out the rhizomes of elytrigia repens..
