for pets to play or lounge around? I ask because of what I read:
"...Pacific foxtail (Alopecurus saccatus Vasey) is a native annual monocot herb found in southwestern southern California counties. The 2-foot-tall, grasslike plant grows in coastal sage, mixed forest communities and in chaparrals on or near wetlands. DRY FOXTAIL FOLIAGE hitches rides on local wildlife and pets OFTEN CAUSING HARM if not removed..." http://www.ehow.com/list_7423694_wild-plants-southern-califo...
Here are some links to several pictures of it---It is NOT 'Foxtail Barley':
I am wondering if what that quoted text (above) is actually not at all an accurate statement for the true Pacific Foxtail / Alopecurus saccatus! I've never noticed any problem with it & our dogs (I have been propagating it little by little) ... but I know that the BARLEY Foxtails CAN be TERRIBLE!
