Sweetgrass is in the grass family technically called the Poaceae family. Debate
has been ongoing for decades by botanical taxonomists about the correct
scientific nomenclature to name the species of sweetgrass used in African-coiled
basketry. When I started working with this plant in the late 1980s, it was accepted
by most botanists that the genus and species was Muhlenbergia filipes M. A.
Curtis. Alternative names are Muhlenbergia capillaries (Lam.) Trin. var. filipes (
M. A. Curtis) ...

Most efforts to transfer alien germplasm from wild plants into cultivated crops
have involved the Triticum grass species—with the greatest emphasis being
placed on improving bread wheat (T. aestivum L.). Over the past 15 years,
CIMMYT has been a part of this endeavor as it has vigorously pursued bread
wheat improvement not only with interspecific hybridization (crosses made
among annual grasses within the Triticum/Aegilops group), but also with
intergeneric hybridization ...

These primitive canes reproduce only vegetatively and probably cannot survive
without the aid of man, but because of their relationships, they are included in this
study of wild forms. Of the numerous wild grasses that are related to Saccharum
those in the genus Erianthus are of interest and importance from the point of view

will keep it growing into fall, although it tends to look rather shabby. Uncommon
in the wild, it may become quite weedy in an irrigated landscape. Plants look best
if the mass of untidy stems and dried inflorescences are removed in late summer,
and look freshest when confined to a moist meadow or pond margin. Panicgrass
self-sows and is easy from seed or by division. Phragmttes australis, common ...
