Description

Needlegrass is just beginning to flower; this is from very high on the hill, in full sun. I don't know whether this is Stipa lepida, cernua, or pulchra, but it's lovely to see the long, delicate needles flashing in the breeze. At the foot of the clump is last fall's goldenrod.

my guess is pulchra. Are these back in Stipa or are they Nassella now?
