Grass identification

gen6tex(8b)August 25, 2010

I have done some searching on Aggie Horticulture (whew!) and consulted the Loflin book and have yet to id the grass in my yard. The middle photo on this page appears to be it:

Also appears to be the photo (without identification) just inside the front cover of 'Grasses of the Texas Hill Country' by Brian and Shirley Loflin.

Can anyone tell me the common name of this grass?

Here is a link that might be useful: RTA

Looks like Saccharum Alopecuroidum aka Erianthus Alopecuroides.
