Love grass (Eragrostis tef).
Love grass, (genus Eragrostis), genus of about 350 species of tufted annual and perennial grasses in the family Poaceae. Love grasses are native to tropical and temperate regions of the world, and several are cultivated as forage or as ornamentals. Love grasses are typically bunched or tufted with flat leaf blades. Most feature characteristic glands on the leaf sheaths and inflorescences. The flower clusters are usually open many-flowered panicles and are wind-pollinated. The fruits lack awns (bristles), and the seeds are generally very small. Many species can tolerate poor soils or drought conditions and readily reseed.
