Paspalum conjugatum

Credit: CC Hsu

Perennials, with long stolons; culms compressed, nearly solid; ligule a ring of hairs. Inflorescence of a pair of racemes, racemes slender, 6-12 cm long, rachis 0.8 mm wide, serrate; pedicels ca. 1 mm long; spikelets in 2 rows. Spikelets 2-flowered, solitary, ovate, slightly acute, 1.5-1.8 mm long; lower glume absent; upper glume and lower lemma similar, thin, margins of upper glume delicately fringed with long silky hairs, hairs as long as spikelet; lower lemma flattened abaxially; upper lemma indurate, ovate, margins inrolled, as long as spikelet, palea indurate, acute, margins inrolled. Caryopsis ca. 1.2 mm long, plano-convex, embryo 1/3 length of grain. Originally from America, now widely naturalized in warm regions of the world. Taiwan, very common in shady places.
