Grass: Thatching Grass (Hyperthelia & Hyparrhenia)

Unread post by lastpride »

Can anyway tell me the name of the really tall grass that is growing next to the road around Pretoriouskop in KNP.

I am doing a project on grasses but cannot identify this.

Many Thanks

Pretty sure it is Hyperthelia dissoluta - also known as Yellow Thatching grass and very common along roadsides in poor soils as those found in the Pretoriuskop area.
