Hill in back with Balsamorrhiza like plant near top - also gladiolis, clematis, 2 leguminous shrubs. Blue star flower. Castilleja like mint, and Proteas. Typical of hill country. This grass is not regarded as one of their best - but it is grazed by cattle and many of the plants cut back in this way. [Shantz travel journal, Mar. 17, 1920]
