Early one morning last month I was out watering and snapped a photo of my Imperata cylindrica 'Red Baron’ (aka Japanese Blood Grass), lit by the sun.
Before I posted the photo to Instagram I checked to make sure I had the name spelled correctly and pulled up the Missouri Botanical Garden website, where they identified it as "one of the ten worst weeds in the world." Wow, that's a serious claim.
Earlier this week I pulled into a parking lot and saw this...
That's a pretty consistent behavior! (we must break free!) I wonder if it will continue down the side of the retaining wall blocks, growing through each and every crack? That could create quite the interesting pattern.
