Selected images for burmareed (Neyraudia reynaudiana )

Burmareed is a perennial, bunch grass that can grow to 10 ft. (3 m) tall. Leaves are linear, flat, slightly hairy on the top, glabrous (no hairs) underneath, 8-39 in. (20-100 cm) long and 0.3-1 in. (8-25 mm) wide. Leaf sheaths are marked by a collar of hairs and a hairy ligule. Flowering occurs in April to October, when large, silver, plume-like inflorescences develop. The inflorescences can be up to 3 ft. (0.9 m) long. Burmareed can be distinguished from common reed by the hairy collar around the leaf sheath. Burmareed is native to South Asia and was introduced into the United States in 1916. Burmareed is extremely flammable and can produce flames up to 30 ft. (9 m) high.
