Bottlebrush Grass

Looking at a sample of Bottlebrush Grass will leave you with no question about how it got its name.

The grass was used by pioneers to clean bottles and the hard to reach places that we use bottlebrushes for today.

Why is this grass even worth blogging about? Even though it is not a showy wildflower, at least three species of moth and butterfly larva depend on this grass for food.

Even the most mundane looking plants have a place in the general scheme of things.
