Good morning

Found this remarkable grass beside railway tracks in Hooghly.

Species : UNKNOWN
H & H : height 1 foot to 3 feet; culm slim, branched, glabrous; leaves less than 15 cm x 1.2 cm; inflorescence 10 cm or longer
Date : 9/11/12, 2.35 p.m.
Place : Hooghly

Searched for purple or red pennisetum, found one, Pennisetum setaceum (Forssk.) Chiov. is it?

Thank you & Regards,

surajit

Good evening Sir

This is Pennisetum pedicellatum, the spikelets match perfectly. The spikelets of Pennisetum setaceum are different.

Thank you very much.

Regards,

surajit
