Sacciolepis indica (L.) Chase
Glenwood grass
Poaceae
 

 

 

This slender, annual grass invades disturbed and open areas in wet habitats. The seeds are dispersed by sticking to animal fur. Its response to fire, an unlikely event in the rain forest, is unknown. It has not been evaluated for biological control.

Glenwood grass occurs on all major islands. There is a large infestation moving into Wahiawa Bog, Kaua'i and above Nahiku, Maui.
