Reed Sweet Grass, detail
Reed Sweet Grass, detail
In form, the tips of the leaves resemble the bows of a boat. Alternatively they could be described as slightly hooded. The scientific name is Glyceria maxima. It has also been known as Reed Meadow Grass (Glyceria aquatica). It is a tall, leafy, reed-like, native grass, very handsome in both leaf and flower. It's enjoyed by cattle but has no history of human consumption. It thrives at the edge of ponds or slow-moving water. Here, although a watercourse is shown on the map, it is neither visible nor audible but the reed sweet grass is a clear sign that there is water there: see SP2266 : Reed Sweet Grass half-grown
