Pink grasses in a seeded hay meadow

Meadows on the Vile at Rhossili 7

Scroll down to content

Meadows 7 – Picture from the old medieval field strip system called The Vile on the cliff top at Rhossili, Gower, South Wales, where the fields are separated by vegetated earthen embankments. Each field has a different combination of wild flowering plants and grasses. What makes the fields look so special at this time is the abundance of one particular type of grass which has flowerheads turning a pale purple-pink. I am definitely no grass expert but I am wondering if it is Yorkshire Fog Grass (Holcus lanatus). Photographed 17 June 2021.
