A Kikuyu in the head

If you're familiar with the invasive plant known as Kikuyu grass (Pennisetum clandestinum), you may want to take a look at this document from the USDA. It describes a proposal to remove two cultivars of the grass, Whittet and AZ-1, from the federal noxious weed list. The government is seeking more information about these cultivars, after complaints that they were lumped together as "noxious" with the wild parent plant. Comments from any interested parties are welcome until April 11 through this site.
