IMG_1038 Petey jabbers on and on about some native bunch grasses.

Fall is certainly the time to get out and visit the vast grasslands in the uplands of southeastern Arizona. As native bunch grasses dry the stems take on various shades of red, purple or yellow.  Maybe a paint guide from the hardware store would be handy to describe the colors. Well. at least for me.

So many of the Bouteloua or the gramas are attractive and belong in a personal landscapes.    However, purple grama or Bouteloua radicosa would be hard to find in a nursery, so you best go hiking and enjoy it in habitat.
