Autumn is a time when even grass can become a beautifully colored photograph. Grasses are a very diverse plant group and can be found in a huge range of climates, colors and sizes. Mibora minima is the smallest grass which grows between 2-15 centimeters tall, whereas the largest grass which is actually a bamboo can reach a height of 30 meters (98 feet)! Grass grows on every continent and in every climate even in Antarctica, and so can be a colorful and very hardy addition to any garden. Happy weekend everyone!
