romantic grass of the week - we have all had a roll around in the - COMMON COUCH - cynodon dactylon. i even found some in my coriander i bought from the shop and scanned it in. notice the identifiable hairs under the leaf bract. blades are grey-green 2-14cm. seedheads are produced in a cluster of two to six spikes, each spike 2-5cm long, DEEP ROOT system. reproduces thru seed, root and rhizome. in winter it goes brown. one of the few grasses that can grow in saline conditions. 7 varieties found in australia, 2 are native and 1 of the 2 only found in australia
