Bothriochloa laguroides clump A. A. Reznicek clump

Native south and west of Michigan, but apparently spreading along roads. First found along the gravel verges of Interstate 94 in Calhoun Co. in 2015.

This is a showy clumping grass with striking white fruiting heads, vaguely reminiscent of Schizachyrium scoparium, but with more than one raceme per inflorescence.
