Tall Manna Grass

Tall Manna GrassTall Manna-grass (Glyceria grandis), a stout, handsome species, is often seen in wet grounds, where the ample panicles and broad leaves rise above sedges and low grasses.

Like others of the genus, Tall Manna-grass is a species of which cattle are fond and wade through miry bogs to reach, and water fowl, during the fall migration, find resting places along streams where these grasses, grow abundantly, as the seeds yield a feast to thousands of birds.

Tail Manna-brass is from three to five feet in height and bears large panicles of many spikelets.
