romantic grass of the week: warm waves of winter, Rytidosperma Longifolium formerly Danthonia Longifolium - a long leaved wallaby grass.. not as furry as the common wallaby grass, but has awned florets in a lanceolate panicle 5-15cm long, found along east coast down from Brisbane.. likes high altitudes, easiest spotting feature is slightly curled filiform blades.... spotted in Redbank at Timothy Green's.
NB. Tardy Disclaimer: Since moving to Sydney haven't been getting out bushwalking much or seeing grasses, also so much academic reading has made me question how the romantic grasses and I fit in with the apocalypse of the Internet and any kind of leftist revolution. Made a new years resolution to get out more (in general).
