|I noticed this in my prairie patch last week. It doesn't look like any I've seen before. There's none of this out in the pasture that I am aware of. |
I showed this to a friend who knows plants and she didn't recognize it. She did say most native grasses would be brown by this time. Most does not mean all, so I thought to ask here. It's been a weird autumn and I did find some Canada Rye that is still green.
I do not know that this is enough to get an ID from, but I thought I'd try.

|My first thought from the picture is orchard grass, Dactylis glomerata. Edit: how tall is it, just in case I'm thinking it's bigger than it actually is?|

|Hmm... maybe about two to three feet. I can go back out tomorrow with a ruler to get a better measurement.|

|Sue is right. It's Orchard-grass (Dactylis glomerata)|

|Ah, bummer, I'll get that pulled. USDA says it is introduced here. Thank you so much for the replies.|
