Species: Schedonnardus paniculatus
Vegetative identification: Early on this can look like a sick-looking little bluestem. The leaf blades are blue-green with white margins, have a distinct mid-rib on the back with a prominent vein on each side of it. The blades are keeled near the sheath and smooth on both sides. The sheath is flat. Blades become twisted with drying.
