Swollen windmill grass (Chloris barbata)
Swollen windmill grass is found worldwide, but especially in the tropical and subtropical regions, and more often in the Southern Hemisphere. Grasses of this genus are variable in morphology, but in general the plants are less than half a meter in height and they bear inflorescences shaped like umbels, with several plumes lined with rows of spikelets. The genus was named for Chloris of Greek myth, a figure associated with flowers and spring.
