Growing at the side of a shady stream it was difficult to get clear images of this grass.
A tall gracefull drooping grass.
Pairs of braches coming of the stem bearing panicles of spikelets with long awns.
What struck me about it was that it was smooth until a node after which is was covered in long hairs. After the leaf the stem became smooth again until the next node.
