Not Cotton



This is a dry land plant/weed. The dryer and hotter it is the better it does. This year it is growing everywhere, on the fences, in the fields, pastures. I'm wondering if anyone knows the name of it and if anyone has it growing on their place. Animals doesn't eat it and it seems to be completely useless.

I don't know it, Paula. But I have plenty of useless things around my area that I'd like named too ;-). ~Mary

Your dry land plant is new to me, Paula, but interesting. I don't think any dry land plant would last long around here in the Tennessee Valley. We do have useless plants, however among other things..ha.

Sorry, I don't have any idea what that plant is.

We could try picking it and spinning it, who knows?

Some things just seem useless, sorta like a mosquito. hahaha
Take care....

I think I've seen that stuff somewhere, but cannot remember where.

That invasive stuff looks like dandelion fluff on a long stem...useless looking byt who knows, maybe when the ground is all cracked, it seeds there and has some God-given use somewhere down the line, like "making a smoother path to drive on."
I even looked this one up in my grasses book and did not find it. Try the agriculture dept in your area...they know everything...
