SkywatchFriday; Tiger grass;

Please click the picture;

Tiger grass; Thysanolaena maxima; the flowers making an interesting cross hatching against the sky.

For interest sake;
Although not a true bamboo species, Tiger Grass is a bamboo-like, tropical, ornamental grass with lush arrow-shaped foliage that fits a niche for smaller size single storey screens up to 3m tall. It forms a tight upright clump with older stems turning a reddish colour in full sunlight making it also perfect as a stand alone ornamental. Quite drought tolerant.

  1. Nice contrast. That vivid blue sky is so pretty through the grass.

  2. Beinahe hätte es heute auch ein ganz ähnliches Foto bei mir gegeben. Der gleiche Himmel mit den Wolken, nur ein anderes, schon fast herbstlich gefärbtes Gras. Dein hohes Tiger Gras stelle ich mir besonders schön vor bei leichtem Wind...und sicher ist es auch ein richtiger Handschmeichler :-) !!
    Häb en guete Tag! Liebi Grüess,
