I can’t recall if I have shared any photographs of this on the blog before or not.
But if I have, I still don’t know what this is. LOL!
It’s some sort of odd grass-like plant that grows in one spot on the creek bank. I suspect that it is some sort of purchased plant, that maybe got displaced during flooding and belonged to someone up the creek from us… maybe. That is totally a guess. But it doesn’t look like anything native that I’ve ever seen around here.
This is what it looks like sprouting up:
And this is a stick of it left over from last season:
It stays green months after a stalk has broken off. And during the summer it has stripes. My daughter says that she thinks it looks like something out of Dr. Suess, and I think she’s right. Although you wouldn’t think so by the two photos I am sharing here. I need to try to get some of it, during it’s more colorful stage.
If anyone knows what it is, please let me know. Thanks!
