I've officially found my new favorite plant here on Earth, or at least my favorite grass: the glorious tussock... which is actually just a clump of grass, according to Wikipedia: Tussock grasses or bunch grasses are found as native plants in natural ecosystems, as forage in pastures, and as ornamental grasses in gardens. Tussock and bunch grasses, in the Poaceae family, are grasses that usually grow as singular plants in clumps, tufts, hummocks, or bunches, rather than forming a sod or lawn, in meadows, grasslands, and prairies. As perennial plants usually, they live more than one season.
Why did it take me so long to realize your beauty? I can't think of anything more gorgeous now that you caught my full attention. You are so big and strong with a perfectly developed color combination of grayish purple, green, yellow, orange, brown... topped with a handful of golden blond highlighted tips. And when the sun hits you just right... speechless dipped in sublime. You are so soft and gentle against my leg when I pass by, not like that damn Spaniard Grass. Tussocks seem to flirt with me, too, as they protrude a bare shoulder while the wind blows back their hair... begging me to gaze at them with admiration and envy. You are just perfect. Well, perfect until I have to hike through you on some long distance trail across a country, that is. Then you can be a real bitch.
