Hello all,

Here is my first post to that forum...

I would like to identify that grass photographed in September in South Quebec (near Vermont).

Any idea?

Yep, foxtail (Setaria). However, I doubt it's possible to determine for certain which species of Setaria it is just from the picture

Welcome! Michel.

According to my ID guide to Weeds of Quebec, the inflorescence being curved at maturity is a characteristic that confirms it is giant foxtail, Setaria faberii.

Thanks everyone for your so appreciated help :)

Sooby, I think you are right! I found the same characteristic and I remember the plant was very high.

There are 4 Setaria species in Quebec.

Thanks alot :)
