Red Grass

There is always something new blooming when the resident canine and I walk at the tall grass prairie a few miles from home.  It's both a remnant and a restoration of what was here before the farmers arrived 200+ years ago. 

We were there very early yesterday morning as the sun was coming through a stand of trees and highlighting this stalk of native grass.  The red part looks like Indian grass, but the broad leaf doesn't match what the rest of the plant should look like. I will leave the description as red grass and do some more research.  The other blooms are yellow cone flowers.

The prairie is full of rabbits and it keeps the dog busy stalking them.
