Beak Grass (Diarrhena americana)
Large, blunt seeds, or grains that make this grass distinguisable from other grasses in the late-summer or early-fall. It's an attractive grass in the spring and summer with shiny green blades that turn golden tan in the fall. Its short stature make it ideal for landscaping or as a ground cover in shaded areas with rich soil.
