Yeah, I didn't think it would take very long once it was determined it was a type of grass, especially since there isn't that many types of ornamental grasses used in landscaping. I was worried that it would take awhile to determine it was even a plant. I guess I was wrong on both.

Lemon Grass, crab grass, bermuda grass, are the only "x grass" phrases I know.

x grass = blue grass
y x grass = kentucky blue grass?

Not really a grass expert I suppose.

There's Johnson grass, but the requirement that the word also name an item used in landscaping shot that one down.

Rock grass, mulch grass, cascading waterfall grass, pond grass, path grass, bush grass, tree grass, flower grass. What other landscaping words are there?

Sorry, I missed this one when I check the thread this morning.

Yes, Purple Fountain Grass(Pennisetum setaceum 'Rubrum') to be exact.


I just pull a crop of the in focus part of this shot.

ram, grasses of that size and shape are in yards in my area, too. I didn't know that this group of grasses had a name. I figured out last night that it was probably "fountain grass" after seeing your clues about a landscaping feature, since I didn't believe there was a Birdbath Grass or a Plastic Flamingo Grass.

I actually learned a bunch about it when I did a Google search to make sure it was something easy to find. People in places like the mid-west still grow it even though it can't survive the cold winters but just plant it as an annual.

I'd seen them in peoples, shopping center parking lots and other businesses and liked how they look so one time while at a nursery I saw they had them and bought one. I have however other plants used Google to find out what they were and I've found it interesting to learn where some of them that seem so common actually came from. I just learned due to using it in this thread that it's native to Africa, Middle East and South East Asia and was first brought to the USA from Africa via Hawaii.
