Himalayan Fairy Grass

Himalayan Fairy Grass

The older, less maintained parts of the Waikumete Cemetery are covered with this grass: Himalayan Fairy Grass (miscanthus nepalensis). Like many pretty things, it’s classed as a weed (invasive, clumping).

Here the fluff in the sky competes with the fluff on the ground.

  1. It may be a weed, but it looks grand against the blue sky. Very well composed picture.
