Grasses of the FWG

We have a small variety of grasses at the Fletcher Wildlife Garden, as shown in this gallery. Many are non-native species which were brought to North America to grow as fodder for cattle. Other non-native but invasive species, have also found their way to the garden. Interestingly, the non-native timothy grass is the larval food plant for the European skipper, which as the name suggests, is also a non-native species. This gallery is arranged alphabetically by common name.
