To the folks in Austin, Texas who commented on June 1

Thanks so much for your question:

"We live in Austin Texas and have planted our yard with Buffalo grass. What are the long, tough shoots in the grass? Are they weeds or seeds? We have been trying to kill them, but they are everywhere. Are they normal?"

Unfortunately this is out of our range; a good resource to check with is the Iowa State University Herbarium folks. Good luck!

  1. I wonder if you are seeing the stolons (aboveground "runners") that are part of the buffalograss plants themselves... and perceiving them as a separate plant species? Click on the lower left photo on this Kansas webpage: http://www.kswildflower.org/grass_details.php?grassID=42
