Vernal grass

What looks to be Anthoxanthum aristatum (its awns are bent and it is unscented) but might also be A. odoratum (it isn’t low and decumbent and branching) is just past flowering just off of Port Royal Avenue, in Roxborough.

Sidewalk sedge

A Carex that looks like annectens is growing in the grassy patch between the sidewalk and the street along Salaignac, just a bit uphill from Manayunk Avenue (and towards the middle of the block – west side).


Elymus repens is flowering along Woodland Avenue, just a bit east of the 40th Street trolley stop.  Its clasping auricles are clearly visible at the most distal leaves’ bases, but not for the lower, older ones.
