Briza maxima-Big Quaking Grass. This grass gets its name from the pendulous seed hands which dangle and quake in the wind. This didn't seem to transplant well; most of the plants in Dickinson had died by the first evaluation and all the plants at both locations had died by the second. Despite this, the seed heads stayed on all season which kept them fairly ornamental.
