Does anyone recognize this grass? I'm having no luck finding pics online or in one grass encyclopedia. It's fairly distinctive, sho shouldn't be a problem, but I'm getting nowhere. I scarfed seeds from it...lol..but need to know first that the seeds are not sterile before I bother sowing them....

TIA

Thank you..that does look possible, doesn't it? I think that my problem in IDing is that the inflorescenses (inflorescensi?...lol..) in the grass I saw had not opened and extended yet to their eventual 'fluff'...I have quite a few grasses but do not have the pennisetum villosum, though I did grow several different pennisetums in SoCal...

I'm thinking that you are correct unless I hear another opinion...anyone agree or disagree?
