The grasses are man's most useful family of plants

Bamboo, As A Grass, A Form Of A Plant

Most bamboo species are native to warm and moist tropical and warm temperate climates. However, many species are found in diverse climates, ranging from hot tropical regions to cool mountainous regions and highland cloud forests. In the Asia-Pacific region they occur across East Asia, from north to 50° N latitude in Sakhalin, to south to northern Australia, and west to India and the Himalayas. China, Japan, Korea, India and Australia, all have several endemic populations.[from wikipedia]

Beach Grass, As A Form Of Plant Life

Ammophila (synonymous with Psamma P. Beauv.) is a genus of flowering plants consisting of two or three very similar species of grasses. The common names for these grasses include marram grass, bent grass, and beachgrass. These grasses are found almost exclusively on the first line of coastal sand dunes.[from wikipedia]

Cattail (Typha), Grass

Also called in British English as bulrush, bullrush, or reedmace,[1] in American English as punks, or corndog grass, in Australia as cumbungi or bulrush, and in New Zealand as raupo.

Dry, And Dried Grass, As A Form Of Plant

Poaceae or Gramineae is a large and nearly ubiquitous family of monocotyledonous flowering plants known as grasses. Poaceae includes the cereal grasses, bamboos and the grasses of natural grassland and cultivated lawns and pasture. Grasses have stems that are hollow except at the nodes and narrow alternate leaves borne in two ranks.[from wikipedia]

Long, sword-shaped leaves provide contrast in the garden all season.[from]

Hay, As A Form Of Dried Grass, As A Plant

Hay is grass, legumes, or other herbaceous plants that have been cut, dried, and stored for use as animal fodder, particularly for grazing animals such as cattle, horses, goats, and sheep. Hay is also fed to smaller animals such as rabbits and guinea pigs. Pigs may be fed hay, but they do not digest it as efficiently as fully herbivorous animals.[from wikipedia]

Native, Grasses

Grasses indeginous to an area, often planted replace lawn.

Pampas, Grass (Cortaderia selloana)

Pampas Grass is a tall grass, growing in dense tussocks that can reach a height of 3 m (9.8 ft).

Tufts, Of Grass

Small clumps of gras growing seperate from the primary area.

Well Raised Garden Grass, Ornamental Grass, Eugene, Oregon

Ornamental grasses are grasses grown as ornamental plants. Ornamental grasses are popular in many colder hardiness zones for their resilience to cold temperatures and aesthetic value throughout fall and winter seasons.[from wikipedia]

Wet, Grasses, As Found Plants

Grasslands such as savannah and prairie where grasses are dominant are estimated to constitute 40.5% of the land area of the Earth, excluding Greenland and Antarctica. [from wikipedia].Here we explore grasses either growing in water or wet from water.

Wheat, Grass

Cultivated worldwide. In 2007 world production of wheat was 607 million tons, making it the third most-produced cereal after maize (784 million tons) and rice (651 million tons).

Wild Grass, Wildlife Safari, Winston, Oregon

Grasses have stems that are hollow except at the nodes and narrow alternate leaves borne in two ranks. The lower part of each leaf encloses the stem, forming a leaf-sheath. The leaf grows from the base of the blade, an adaptation allowing it to cope with frequent grazing.[from wikipedia]
